Default Rear block lift?

I am new to this forum and i want to lift my 95 4 door. i want to do torsion bar keys and a block lift on the rear. Has anyone done a block lift on this site? my concerns are that i will have to extend my brake lines and possibly other things. i have also done research on here with the torsion bar lift. i was planning on getting 1-3"torsion bar keys and then getting a set of zr2 torsion bars. can anyone help me with this?

If you put blocks in the rear you will lower it! Your truck is SUA look around and you will find just about every lift combination possible.

Only options are an add-a-leaf, different springs, or a extended shackle to lift the rear. Or spring over, but that is about 5" of lift.

Ok we'll then I am going to do shackles in the rear. But with the 1-3" torsion keys do I have to get new shocks that are longer or will stock be fine?

I'm contemplating a small lift on my 98 Jimmy 4x4 and picked up a set of blocks for the rear. Is it true you can use blocks to lift OR lower depending on where you place them?

our blazers are SUA spring under axle, when you place the block between the axle and leafs on a SUA you'll intern raise the axle up into the body per say, thus lowering your blazer.

If any one on here tries to do a shackle lift you WILL need to get longer shocks! The stock will not work like people on this site have said previously!
