to lower the front all you have to do is back out the tbar bolts and then add lowering blocks to the rear.

a kit for a 4x4 is waste of money IMO. to back the bolts out just look up the torsion bar crank in the DIY section and just turn your bolts the opposite way and the blocks are fairly easy to install.

the blocks go between the axle and the leaf springs... fairly straight forward. I've considered doing the same thing, but the clearance is nice when I get boxed into parking lots and the couple of times I go off-road.

It's recommended you get shocks, and an alignment for that matter, but the shocks aren't necessary, just a good idea. (Don't ask me why) You'll probably have to trim your bump stops too.

i would put the blazer on jack stands. if you look through the How to on the tbar crank itll tell you exactly what to do, but youll just have to turn your tbar bolts the opposite way(back them out) to lower the front.
