It can be done, but why, lol?

The back can be lifted the same as a 4x4. A combination of shackle and spring should get you there. or even going SOA.

I'm not sure about 4" on the front. I know rough country makes a 2" lift for 2wd trucks.

A body lift would get you there easy enough if you just need room for bigger tires.

You could go with spindles and moog coil springs in the front. Probably net you about 5" which would be perfect if you go soa in the back.

SOA stands for Spring Over Axle. It's a conversion available for vehicles (like the blazer you own) with the leaf springs sitting under the axle. The SOA kit puts the spring on top of the rear axle, allowing blocks to be installed to provide a lift in the rear.
