    Just bought a 1987 Blazer that has a lift. The owner didn't install it. He thinks it's a 4" but doesn't know. How can I tell? Where are the measuring points to compare to stock?

  2. measure from the top of your front axle tube to the bottom of the bumpstop bracket. somewhere around 12-13 inches is a 4 inch lift. variables would be winch, big or small block, age of springs and so on. there was a thread on this a while back and everyone put in their data. might be able to find it- do a search.

    I usually look at the steering to tell me if it doesn't have crossover on it. If it has the stock pitman arm on it and the steering arm for correction, the drag link should be about perfectly straight across if it's a 4" lift with that arm.
