2wd? or 4x4? from the picture it looks like a 2wd. so you would need some coil spacers and and some shackles in the rear.

well stock size, 235/75r15 is pretty much a 29 inch tire. so if you are looking to put 30's on, you are only talking about 1/2 inch on each side. if you look in lifting tech, there should be a sticky that you can start at. it should tell you what you need to fit what you want.

Most people can squeeze 30's on factory S-series Blazer rims without any lift at all, 2wd or 4wd. If you go with the 2" lift you should be golden.

i wound the front torsion bars up to there max then had the rear leaves reset to the same height and with just a touch of trimming just behind the lower rear section of the front flares.i got 31.5x10.5 Micky T's under my 2000 model t10 [right hand drive s10] 4x4.its very hard on idler arms and cv boots tho less than 6000 kilometers to a idler arm and about 10000 out of the boots.i suggest put tall upper ball joints in at the same time to correct the camber a little at the same time that's assuming the left hand drive series has the same wheel align issues as the ones we get here.
