Default Question about Rough Country 6" lift

I own a 98 4WD S10 Blazer 4x4. I want to put the Rough Country GM 6 inch suspension lift on it, but have a question. To anyone who has used this lift on similar models, do I need to swap rear axles? I wouldn't think so but the website mentioned something about it for certain models. Thank you

You have to do an axle flip not an axle swap. What that means is that you flip the springs to the top of the axles instead of the bottom to gain lift.

How is the ride quality with this lift? Any increased wear?

Does anyone know if that kit would fit a 94 S10 4x4?
