    How many things would I have to fix if I get a 1" body lift on my 88 BLAZER ?

    It now has 4" Rough Contry lift springs and no sway bar on 33s.

    I just had to adjust the shift linkage and trim the fan shroud.

    Loosened the shift linkage when I started and tightened it when I finished. I used a hacksaw to cut the shroud. The whole process took around an hour.

    Here's what I had to do on my 84.

    Cut the bottom fan shroud
    Adjust the steering shaft
    Add some length to the tranny linkage
    Cut or you could just take off the tailgate springs ( I took them off)

    I think that was about it...but it took a long weekend to get it done.

    Keep in mind that my truck is a rust free Suburban. I didn't have to do anything to the tailgate and all of the body bolts were very easy to get out.
