Default Blazer lift...NEED HELP PLEASE!!!

Recently a couple friends and myself started installing a suspension lift kit in my 1991 S-10 Blazer. Before realizing we had the wrong lift, a Rough Country 4" Lift for a K-5 Blazer, We put a 4" lift on the rear but moved the axle to the bottom of the leaf springs, essentially making it into roughly a 9" lift. The front however, the company sent me a kit for a solid axle and mine has indepedent suspension on the front, I was just hoping someone could find some time to help me out and maybe give me a few ideas on how to lift the front without having to take off the back lift.

Well it sounds like you have a lift for a full size so I don't really see any way to make the front work besides doing a SAS now other than that nothing you can do really.

Sounds like the only other option is take it off and send it back or sell it

Like Rex said, it sounds like you're part way through a solid-axle transplant now. Unless you really go for that huge raked looked. I'd say you're only options are remove the rear lift, go solid axle up front, or possibly go with a Superlift 6" lift or BDS 5" lift for the front to keep the IFS.
