    Okay so I'm itching to lift the Blazer I just got. I read everyones post re the topic for some time. Im leaning at the BDS Suspension to go with the shacle flip + springs or Rough Country from offroaddesign. I want to run 35 or35 in tires but I realize that it might tuen to 38's or higher. So you guys running 35's on 4" are you regretefull you didnt go higher if I go 4" due to its overall cost benefits how much fender triming can I get away with to run say 36 or 37's. I don't think Im ready for the Hybrid look either. I like to see say 4" lift and 36 tires anyone got pics? Finally or should I just get the 6" lift and spend the extra money and lose ride quality.


    I need help. ;)

    38's or higher with a 4" lift....if you ever do lean that way and do it...better invest in a sawzall!! I have a 6" lift and had 36's with no trimming and they rubbed like mad in the right spots....

    I used to have realy flexy 4" springs , a 3" body lift, 33 12.50s and I would chew on the bottom rear corners of the front fenders .Now I have 6" Pro Comp easy ride springs ,a 2" body lift,35 12.50s, trimmed a little bit off the bottom corners of the front fenders and havent rubbed yet.The only thing that realy suffered when going from 4" to 6" was my turning radius.Ive got a dropped drag link and a raised steering arm and it still sucks.Other than that Im glad I went with 6".

    I regret not going higher. Go with a 6" soft ride.
