    Well, while doing nothing for your spelling abilities, what exactly are you looking at conquering? How much lift? What's the rating on the add-a-leafs?

    Sounds like you should really delve into some research and find out what people are doing to aid in their adventures off road.

    Sorry about the spelling i was in a hurry to type the question because i had to go do something but, What im trying to ask is if i get 1.5 to 2 inch add aleafs and put a offroad design bodylift and the front shackels how much lift would this give me. And i already have add a leafs in the rear of my blazer.

    Not even four inches, guessing in the neighborhood of 3" at the most. The add-a-leaf will probably raise your spring rate so you will have a little rougher ride. Just hold out until you can go with a complete spring lift, add the body lift on top of that with the shackles and you will be better off.
