    Well im relatively new to the k5 world but im jumping into my blazer really fast. Right now it is in the shop having the tranny rebuilt with a HD kit and a cooler.Transfer case is being rebuilt as well. The truck already has a 6 inch suspension lift but it has the stock 10 bolts...yeah they got to go. In about a month, im going to have boyce equipment build me a dana 60 and 14 bolt to bolt underneath the truck wooo. So from what ive read, the front will get raised another 3/4 inches due the spring perches on the d60? how can i go about lifting the rear another inch or so? Im going to put bushwacker cut out flares and probably run 38's. What if i had 1 inch shackles up front and 2 inch blocks in the rear...if thats possible?

    A 1" zero rate would work good for an extra inch. A 2" block would be ok as long as you don't already have a block in there - never stack blocks.
