    I have been trying to find out what the legal lift hieght is for a K-5 blazer and I can't find that out any where. I went to a local inspection station and asked and what they told me is 2 inches is it. but if you read the info on the RMV. site it tells you that there are differnt rules for 4wd vehicles but I can't find them. Does anyone know?

    Yup, 2 inches. But find a friendly station owner who owns a lifted truck. Or so the old extra couple bucks on the side and you'll be fine. I never had a problem with my 4 inch lift and 35" tires, just gotta know who to talk to.

    Thanks to Ryoken who gave me the info according to the information on the mass site and Provision 540 CMR 6.00 blazers can have a total suspension lift of about 4 inch and increased tires size of the same amount and you can have a tolerance of about a inch. using mass's formula they give you for 4x4
    (wheel base x wheel track divided by 2200) for me it is
    (106.5*73=7668 / 2200 = 3.50") rounded up =-) to four and that will give you 8 inches total.

    That may be the law on paper, but like the others said, inspection stations say 2" up or down is the limit.
    Every place I have ever gone for stickers was completely ignorant of the formula…good luck.
    "How much is that lifted?"
    "Little bit, I guess. Bought it like that."
