Default 6inch Lift kits?

Hey yíall,

so, Iíve been trying to search different forums and figure out which would be the best bang for buck lift kit for my 1998 blazer 4x4 non zr2 and it seems that Iím only finding old posts from 10 years ago. People then recommended kits like bds, superlift, trail master and rough country. I want to go 6 inch because Iíve heard of the complications of 2.5 inch on the front end and would like to avoid that. Yes I know I will have to replace things overtime because itís still a lift. The problem is when I went to look up superlift, trailmaster or bds, I couldnít find anything on their website besides nuts or a few small hardware pieces. Iím guessing they donít sell kits anymore? All I see is the rough country 6 inch kit and while itís only about $1000 Iím more of a ďyou get what you pay forĒ kind of guy and Iíve also had some bad experiences with rough country on wranglers and xjís when it came to their shipped parts that were horribly welded. What other lifts are out there? I prefer something that doesnít require welding if possible because I lack the knowledge of that trade. Your help is appreciated!

With the last Blazer produced over 10 years ago I was relieved to see that there were some lift kits still on the market as of a few years ago. I have noticed that Superlift doesn't have a 2" lift kit any longer. I thought maybe Rough Country had a 6" lift but they still have the 2.5" kit for now.

Rough country has a 2.5 and a 6 inch lift. Trail master and superlift has been discontinued. Iím trying to see if there are any other companies that make lift kits besides rough country.

Huh, I thought superlift still made theirs... other than that rough country is the only one available to my knowledge.

I thought so too. Some people seem to have them online. I keep seeing this website with theirs but my buddy who also has an s10 blazer said he ordered this kit below from them and then got a call stating it has been discontinued. So I donít know if I should just go with rough country or..

So then your next option would be a Solid Axle swap. Which is about the same cost as high end lift and probably more dependable

anything more beneficial? Do you possibly have a link for a forum for that? I try searching and for some reason it just brings me to google. My phone is weird. I canít imagine a solid axle giving me any more lift than I currently have. Just more stability in the front end.
