    Here are a few pictures of my blazer after I put on the lift. The rear is an Echobit shackle flip, and the front is BDS 4" springs.

    I wonder if the .bmp format has something to do with it! Try to save them as .jpg.

    Well, not only did I put on the lift (echobit flip, and bds springs), I also put in a 14ff, swaybar disconnects, shocks, brake lines, and a new steering arm. All in all, it took 2 days. I would have been done in 1 except the old front springs didnt want to come off the blazer. /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif

    I put the lift on in October, but just got around to putting the pictures up. The tires are 12.50's and definitely rubbed. They would clear from lock to lock, unless you tried to flex. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif I cut the back of the fron fenders, and they dont hit anymore. I still need to cut the front of them a little, as the tires rub the front a bit under really good flex. As for the rear tires, they dont rub at all. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Actually with Echobit and BDS I bet the actual lift is more like 5.5-6"

    The front springs came with shimms. Im not sure how much though. I guess 3-5 degrees. I did not shimm the rear though. After I put on the lift, I could hear a very loud grinding sound comming from the rear somewhere every time I let off the gas. It took me a while to figure out what it was. It ended up being the driveshaft angle at the t-case, which was very sensitive since its a slip yolk 208. I had to lengthen the shaft and put a cv joint at the end. Fixed it though. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
