    On a Blazer with some lift to it, is a bent drag link really necessary? I can see with no lift, or a four inch, but what about something taller, like and 8 inch lift?

    kinda depends on a bunch of variables, such as those mentioned/shown in my post.
    which pitman and steering arms?
    what tie rod or hiems are you wanting to run?
    etc

    I think it all depends on the crossmember. A bend might be necessary to clear it.
