Default lifting

i have a 2000 chevy blazer lt and just put 33in tires on the back with a stock lift. they rub a little bit on the inside bc of the *****. im trying to figure out how to get about 3in of lift for the front and the rear so i can clear the rear tires and put some in the front. this is my dd and im trying to get it done fast and right but do it myself at the sametime.

2 inch shackles or add a leaf for the back, t bar crank 1 1/2 inches in the front. Then a 2inch body lift. should be able to it for under 300.00

2 " shackles, zr2 keyways for trosion bars with a lil tbar crank, not so much cranking needed with the new key ways, and 2" body lift will work. and still under $300.

I am currently running 33x10.5x15's on Z28 rims. In order to make them fit with only minor rubbing I have done the following.

Lift shackles 6" hole to hole.
2 thin long add a leaves per side.
2.5 " rough country lift on the front only.
Significant trimming on the rear of the front fenders and rear of the rear bumper covers.
2" PA body lift.

You could get away with out the front 2.5" lift but you would have to crank your T bars quite a bit.

Good Luck.
