Default lift kit help

Hey guys I really need some help with a lift kit. I'm trying to look for a 5" or 6" lift kit anywhere for sale. I have a 2004 chevy blazer LS 4dr. 4X4. I'm trying to find a lift kit for a decent price but I can't find anything to fit my blazer! any help will be greatly appreciated!

Thumbs down

I had a 5" TrailMaster kit. It worked ok, but the steering geometry wasn't done right in the kit.

u could do a solid axle swap for less than the price of a ifs lift. would b way better too. in my opinion. looks cooler too. if the ride is what u are worried about u could run coils instead of leafs on ur solid axle. food for thought.

I ordered mine from 4wheelparts.com. I wouldn't buy another TrailMaster kit though, it caused a few headaches over the years. The 5" BDS kit has incorrect steering geometry as well.

A SAS is cheaper to do imho, but it's a lot more work and fabricating. Worth it though.

alright thank you all for helping me! I've heard about the axle swap but I didn't know it would be cheaper. What all components would you have to buy for the full swap?

Most popular and probably easiest doner vehicle is a Jeep Cherokee, YJ or TJ. SAS isn't for the faint of heart, you need to cut a lot of parts with little chance of going back.
