    I was going to get some new Poly bushings for my 89 Blazer. I have 33" tires without clearance issues, but I also want to add a 1" body lift. Some have mentioned getting the lift at ORD. What's their link and if I do bushings and a 1" lift at the same time will I have to shave more than the fan shroud?

    Thanks for any advice ! :)

    Might need to adjust your transfercase shift linkage "very simple" and maybe your trans linkage if you have an auto trans "never done it, have a manual trans".

    I need some new body mounts, soon. How do the poly mounts ride? Are they worth it?

    They were cheaper than rubber mounts!! Thats the primary reason i bought them. They do transfer more vibrations, but It is tolerable.
