I definitely want to lift my 2000 chevy blazer to make it look and drive more aggressive. I was advised not to do this because it'll mess up all the steering components... Any suggestions?

Body lift no.
Cranking the torsion bars...maybe..depends on if you go crazy.
Suspension lift....i would advise upgrading beyond oem joints if running large tires.
But in the end there is alot of reading around here to help fill in the gaps and reasons.

How much $$$ do you have....5-6" cost around $2200
Shackle and torsion bars crank about $70 ish....
Body lift (2") $200 .... I chose all the above...plus 33"tires
And want more...not to pee on anyones parade.. but if looks are what
You after, consider a body lift...you keep the same suspention
Stuff and nothing wears out, will beable to install 30-31"
Tires..

Buy a K5 they were made to lift not an s10.' Look more aggressive' is your opinion, and you are entitled to that. Drive more aggressive? It will prolly drive worse.
