    Wouldn't recomend it but you can get about 2" most of the time. I would go to a junk yard and look for a zr2 then pull parts off and replace.

    ZR2s are a different body style not sure you could even swap the parts over. Much more than 1" lift on torsion bars usually creates a bouncy and crappy ride. I did 1" on my 95 K2500 to level it out, it looked good but on good bumps it bounced like it had bad shocks. You could just do what I'm doing with my 85 S10, High Pinion 60, 14 bolt, 4 link with coilsprings, 39.5" Iroks ;)

    Cranking up the IFS is one of the worst (and dummest) things I have seen. You will destroy your ride, handling, blow CV's out, and destroy tires by having the front end cranked out. I cringe everytime I see a cranked out lifted IFS chevy turn and that inside front tire bends to almost a 110* angle. If you want it higher I would purchase and install a lift kit to keep proper factory IFS angles.
