    Think I may go with a Superlift 4" superride setup and a set of Zero rates all around. What else will I need to do? Lengthen front or rear driveshaft at all? Longer brake lines?

    I have the Superlift softride (no blocks). I believe the kit just came with brake line brackets to lower them down. I have had no problems my driveshafts are stock length I am pretty sure you don't have to lenghthen them until you go 6"+. Someone will correct me if I am wrong.

    Thank you, I am not sure what I am gonna do now cause well we got a good bit of snow and I just rode a snowmobile for the first time in a year(sold mine last year) and I forgot how much I missed it. May use the money I was going to use for the blazer to get a simple 4" for now and a new fourwheeler or sled.
