Default 2 door '05. Limited to 2.5" suspension?

Hey all, OSS here. Might be back in the S10 world soon. Sold my '00 in my Sig, and now have my eyes on an '05 4x4 Blazer. I've searched up and down, read stickies ect....Synergy's site is all generic **** now too. Anyways,s with a 2 door, and I limited to around 2,5" sus. lift, 2"BL? No 6" sus for 2 doors?

SAS that beast!!!! I got 13.5" of lift lol. Sorry I don't have any real answer to your question just cause I've never looked into it. I know with a lot of parts tho the cutoff is always listed as '04 but '05 is the same part. Perhaps it's cause it was the last year but I don't see gm re-engineering the entire suspension for 1 production year.

BDS and Superlift both make larger lifts for 2 doors I believe. Call them to double check though.


Trailmaster used to make a 5" lift that fit the 2 doors for sure.


But the only reason they wouldn't work is the torsion bar cross member, you could get any lift for a non zr2 and a set of real lift torsion bar re-locaters and make it work.

Thanks for the replies. I'll take a look at kits for 0 four (my four key doesnt work lol) Ended up picking it up. Will start a build thread and pics soon. '05 Blazer four by four, seems pretty base model (roll windows/manual locks, cloth) but less things to go wrong. (just replaced window motors in my Mark VIII) Very clean underside for northern ontario. Engine bay is spotless, 153,XXX Km's. 3000 bucks
