Default Additional Lift on Front end

I have a 95 S10 Blazer 4x4. I have already myself put on the PA 2" Body Lift and the Rough Country 2.5" Suspension Lift. I want to go bigger, I'm planning on putting 1 or 2 extra leaf springs in, on each side of the back. I just need to know how else I can lift the front an additional 2-3" ???

yeah you really cant go any higher with that IFS in the front. i put one of those 2 inch lifts on a customers truck at work and with the full 2 inches the cv joints were maxed out and the boots were starting to separate.

Don't those kits come with the diff drop bracket to maintain the cv angles better?

I don't think any of the old style 2" "lift kits" come with drop brackets... Just new keys / control arms, and i think the SL kit came with shock extensions...

the 5/6" kits and the new 2.5" kit from RC are the only i know of that have drop brackets.
