    im lifting my first and doubt last blazer. i currently have 33 ATL on it with stock sagging leafs and worn out rancho shocks plus my body mounts need to be replaced (know where to find any?). the rest of the truck is in great shape and i want to go big but not spend all my life savings as well as have great movment and function. i was thinking about 4 ez ride lift to start then a shackle flip front and rear-2 frount 4 rear then go to 35's. the rest of the truck is stock and is a manual. how does this set up sound to you pro's and what would you recomend thanks for the help. p.s. be sure to show pix of results-sandypants

    I would start by replacing the body mounts as stated.
    You might be able to find a used set of front 4" springs and a used shackle flip.

    I think the Tuff Counry 4" in front and ORD shackle flip with stock springs in rear is a good setup. You will always degrade the ride when you start lifting but 4" isnt bad.
