Well, welcome to the forum. You found a good place of information and answers to all of your questions. Become familiar with the sections of the forum. Here's a link to all of the lifts available for our trucks. It is found in the Suspension Tech section.

https://blazerforum.com/forum/suspen...it-list-16313/

If you have anymore questions, do a search on the forum first and see if its been covered, if not or if you have another question just ask!

Good Luck

well i think its like this, the"best" lift is one that serves the need that you have in a affordible manner, hows that ..... the only problem is,,, there
is really no afforable lifts of any real height, in my opinion, the only 3 kits
that are 5" or more are way over the $1500 mark, and there is still no
added front A-arm movment, yes you do get 5-6" more lift, but no extra
articulation, so i purchaced a BDS 5" system for $2200, that was my Xmas
gift, plus a set of 33" pro-comp mud terrains, just need some warmer
weather to install. "should " look more offroadable,

My question for this is, Witch is the best? Like I want a 2.5"-3" lift, but I heard rough country's products arent great but are the best for my budget, so what are your guys idea?

ok Im going to get a bunch of flack for this but heres what I did. Shackles and air shocks in the rear with a onboard compressor rear, lift 2-5 inches of lift Ebay tbar keys and balljoint flip front, 3inches of lift. I also have a 2inch bl.
Now I wheel my truck hard regularly and its daily driven. That being said I knew when I put the keys in my balljoints and cv's would wear faster. I already replace balljoints and idler arm yearly( not a problem got lifetime warranty parts) and as for cv joints replaced both..... 2 years ago (also lifetime warranty) Yes the angles are steep but its not like they are blowing apart every 3 months.

So moral of my long story is that If you dont mind doing a front end rebuild once a year than do what I did. if not get the rc kit and go to town.
