    ok, we have an 81 blazer with a 6 inch lift, blocks in the rear. i want to fit 39.5 TSL's without triming past the inner fender. i also want to get rid of the blocks in the rear. how can i do this cost efficiently and effectivly? i know this subject has been beaten to death but i want to know because there is too much info on the subject to sort through. im not asking for opinions on how large of a ter or anything, just how much lift/trim and how should i get rid of the blocks?

    I run a 3" bodylift along with my 6" and my 39.5's. I have a little trimming and I haven't rubbed yet but I'm sure if I tried to flex it out that it would rub the inners.

    Hopefully Boss will chime in on this but I believe his has about 4 1/2" suspention and a 1" body lift with 39.5's. I am getting mine ready for 39.5's with just 5" suspention lift and some minor /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif trimming. I am going to get rid of the inner fenders up front and probably modify the rear wheelwells. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    When I ran 6" with 39's, I had to trim the inner fender up to the bolts and cut the lower back to the bottom bolt. Removed the swaybar and it hit under the most twisted areas.

    i misread the question.

    yes, get rid of the blocks. if you all ready have 6" fronts, a shackle flip rear (ORD, Springer, Home-Brew, etc.) and soft rear spring will do alot.

    Extended front shackles from ORD move the axle forward a bit, and smooth out the ride.

    If you are REALLY rubbing, then try a body lift.

    so if i trim to the inner fender, do two inch springs, and ORD shackles, and zero rate add a leaves, then it will fit? i am trying to figure this out so that i can not have worrries when i do the axle swap and the tire swap. thanks.
