Default How Low? Full Size 4x4 Newbie

Hi,
I just got a '92 full size Blazer. Its a daily driver and I'm keeping 16' tires. I plan on going with a set of shackles and adjusting the torsion bars. I'm not sure what that will give me. Will I need keys? I want the stance to be noticeable.
Thanks John

Well, I guess the main questions are:
-can I get 3" of lowering in the front by turning the bolt?
-will 3" give me cv/axle bind?
thanks

LIFT IT haha jk its your truck you do what you want but typically we don't suggest going more than 1.5'' up so I would figure you wouldn't want to go down more than that? idk i've never looked into lowering a 4x4

Im just not a 4x4 guy. I owned an '84 s15 Jimmy back in the late 80's. Before and after that, everything was 2wd and usually lowered. This may grow on me, but Im looking at my options. Ditching the front diff aint out of the question.
Can the diff be raised to help align the axles?
thanks
