Default 3" bl questions.

I have a 94' s10 blazer 4x4. I am going to be installing a 3" body lift soon. I was thinking about putting 2" shackles in the rear with new 2-3" torsion keys. Anyone don't this before. If it's a bad idea I will probably go with a 2.5" suspension lift. As for the bl, someone that has done it on the year please tell me if and how you adjusted your steering column.

So with 3" bl and 2.5" suspension and the correct tire size u think it will look bad. I disagree sir. Lol I was just asking if anyone had done the shackle and torsion key with a body lift.

2-3" keys are a bad idea, yes. Puts everything at bad angles. RC 2.5" lift is better.

With the correct size tire what is the reason for the 2.5rc lift? Really!

I am wanting to fit 31s with minimal tu no trimming. I know it can be done with less but in my opinion looks better with at least 5 inch lift I may end up going 33 eventually so want to leave room for that.

2" BL is enough for 31's. 31's with 5" lift is going to look off IMO. you could just do the body for now and if/when you want bigger tires, look at lifting it more then.

Please see " I rolled by Blazer" thread. Higher center of gravity increases chances of roll over. Thats not an opinion
Correct size tire is not 31in. Thats not an opinion
My blazer isnt 4wd. But dont listen to me.

5" w/ 31s. Looks pretty good to me. Yes it is a 2 door but you get the idea.
