Default lifting for the ignorant, where do i start?

Having never lifted anything or making any sort of suspension adjustment... where the hell do I start and what's the best method for maintaining cv shafts? I really only wanna go about 2" of lift without doing a body lift, any suggestions? Shackles and shocks? Bigger springs? Seriously I'm clueless .

Twip will become famous soon enough

have you tried doing a search? lots of people on here have done write ups and step by steps. some of them are even sticky-ed!

good luck with it! you could also use this opportunity to do a step by step yourself and help benefit someone else that is in the same shoes that you are in. just make sure that you take pictures before, along the way, and after. you wont regret it! even if you keep them for yourself!

But there are the rules of the interwebs, if you lift your blazer, you have to show it off on!
