Default Body lift?

So I'm on springbreak next week so I'm going to work for my dad to get money whats the cheapest body lift I can get. I'm getting crown-shackles off there site for $34 or so and I'm doing a 2inch shackle and 1.5 t-bar crank. I'm looking for a cheap body lift to add 2" ontop of the T-bar crank. Blazer is a 96.

It's a 96 blazer LS sorry should of put that. I want to go higher than 4" but I don't want to spend 2k or how ever much it is on the rough country 6" lift I baught my blazer for $850 lol. I was wondering is there anyway of lifting it with parts from a u-pull it yard without buying a kit. I mean I have everything in my garage to custom build. Maybe I should just get some steel and tractor tires and make a swamp buggy jk.

The biggest body lift you will find for it is 2". It's a performances accessories 132 kit. Google that and you will find amazon has the best price shipped at $150. Do try and cobble something together from a junk yard as it would not be at all safe! That with your tbar and shackles will get you close to 4".

Well I need new shocks too because they feel to soft like it floats but will putting new shocks on it even do anything. Most people I know cobble stuff from the pull it yard it's cheaper then paying 2k I was just wondering about it.

Shocks don't give you lift. Your only option for more safe lift than above it SAS or spend $2k for a lift!

with the design of the front IFS, "piecing" something together, i think would be almost impossible, the rear maybe, but its the front that gets you, and after doing a 5" bds lift and the amout of engineering for the suspension pieces on that kit, i would seriously just stay with the torsion bar and shackle lift,any other way will just be dangerous, but like others will tell you, SAS or IFS lift, you gotta pay to play. for what its worth
but if you want to go 4" whats another 2", plus you already have it
