Default 2wd 2door 98 blazer v8 lift options

I am looking at building my 98 blazer. I plan to put a 350 sbc in it. I also want to lift it to clear some 31 or 32s.

The blazer is currently lowered, sadly they did it by blocks in the rear and Heating the front springs.

So I have to buy new springs anyhow. So What springs should I get? Knowing I am going to be adding weight to the front with the small block, is there a stiff lift spring that can give me 2 inch of lift?

If I can get 2 inch of lift then I will add 2 inch body lift. Maybe then I could clear 32s. Wife has me on strict budget so trying to do it as cheap as possible, knowing cheap and custom never go together.

Using the 2" coils in front n 1" shakles in the rear, plus the 2" body lift will clear 31" tires. If u want to use 32" tires u will need to do some triming of the front fenders.
