    2\" lift&shock ?

    If I buy new springs for a 2" lift will I be able to keep my fairly new Rancho shocks that I bought for my stock height Blazer, and how do the new springs mount up front do they go inverted like the stock springs or do they flip them like the rear springs...

    Dang, not sure if I can afford new shocks, anything else I should know (if I do decide to commit suicide with a credit card and the wife) like brake lines or steering components or am I ok with that small of a lift...

    You will be cool with the stock brake lines and steering.
