Default Need help lifting 2001 chevy blazer

Hey guys I'm new to this but Im trying to figure out on how I can lift my old 01 2wd blazer about 5" or so. I can't find any whole kits so I guess I'll have to find the parts myself. I can handle the rear end myself but up front I'm not 100% sure on what I should do. I thought ab lift spindles but the highest I can get is 3" and I just need some help from you guys. I'll attach some pics of the front end for you guys so you can help me out. Thanks in advance!

Did you look at the forum section on lifts for our Blazers? The T-bar plus new rear shackles are common which give about 2". I installed Rough Country upper control arms for a better angle on the upper ball-joints.

seeing as it's a 2wd, you will not find much... no torsion bars, 2wd is coil spring. you'd have to get very creative and do some major fabbing...


5" is tough even with a 4x4...
