    There are a lot of things missing from a body lift instruction sheet.. like removing the rear tailgate springs on a blazer... but unless you only lift one end, you shouldn't have HEI issues. Did you do the kit side to side or back to front when you installed it, sounds like back to front which mine said not to do?

    Good reason to get a new kick ass one!, I cracked my rotor cap when I did mine, then while tring to position it from doing further damage this happened...
