    Rough Country has a 4" lift for a 73-87 1/2 ton truck with shocks & arm for $295. They also have a 4" lift for a 73-91 Blazer with just shocks for the same price. Are they just seperating the two models not to confuse people, or does the truck lift not work on the blazer?

    The truck lift will fit the blazer. In fact, I ordered the kit for the 3/4 ton truck w/ 52" rear springs just to get the u-bolts that fit my 14SF. Bolted right up. Just make sure to get longer brake lines, the little brackets that come with the lift are about worthless.

    So I could just buy the lift for the truck and use the new arm it comes with on a blazer?

    I bought a lift for my 82 k5 and took it off and put it on my 86 K10.
