    I have a 91 full size blazer with 2-1/2" lift and 33" tires. I would like to put 35's on it. Should I just put a body lift or go with a suspension lift. If a suspension lift, what do you guys do to help with drive shaft angles. Mine is already hard on the rear ones.

    You can either lower your transfer case or you can do a shackle flip (which give you a 4" lift in the rear with stock springs and ease the angle on your rear driveline). If you have just a 2 1/2" lift, you will need to either trim your fenders or go with a bigger lift to fit 35's on the trail.

    You could also shim the rear axle so the pinion points up towards the T case, this will help ease some angle woes. Dropping the T-case is definitely a good idea as well. Or you could talk to Jesse at Highangle Driveline and get some sweet custom shafts....

    I have a 4" lift and I dropped the transmission down to help with the driveline vibrations. They are all gone now!
