I believe ZR2 springs will fit from a blazer, not pickup. ZR2's gain their height from the suspension being mounted differently not from taller leafs. You could get an add-a-leaf, new leafs, or shackles. I would go with shackles because you keep the same ride stiffness and they are pretty easy to install could get it done in an hour depending on rust, and if you know someone with a welder they could probably do it no problem. Another budget way of doing it is adding leafs from a junkyard vehicle.

I wouldnt crank the TBar too much, but its up to you.

Then 2" body lift would give better tire clearance
