Default What should I do?

I want to put 31's on my blazer. Should I just do a Tbar crank and shackles?

Here's the dilemma. I need 4 new shocks and upper balljoints anyhow. I know the RC 2.5" kit comes with all these.

OR

should I do the tbar and shackles and put the BEST available shocks available on my blazer..and of course add some springs. If this is the way to go what shocks should I use and what springs.

Thanks for the help in advance.

Karcinagin is an unknown quantity at this point

I did t-bar crank, and lift shackles. Already replaced ball joints with Moog but I also did the ball joint flip. Placing the ball joint on the bottom of the upper A-arm. For better angle. Add that with 4 Rancho rs9000xl adjustable shocks, cost me $250 after mail in rebate on Amazon. I believe the only thing the the RC lift has over T-bar and shackles is the front diff drop brackets to help maintain better cv-joint angles. Hopefully someone who has the RC2.5 on will come in and comment.

FYI for them to fit the in the front the instruction say to to install it upside down. I had the boot on also but the shock boot was rubbing on the cv-joint boot. So I cut it off, the rear fit just fine.
