    I know this is a 73-91 Blazer board, but I was wondering who out there has done a lift kit on there 92 or newer K1500 Blazer or 88 and newer truck? I have been out looking around and BDS and Rancho seem like they have good kits. Any one out there have any good/bad opinions on lift kits available? Thanks.

    You might want to grab a copy of the Four Wheeler magazine that just came out. It has an article on lifting the IFS vs. swapping to a solid axle. The rig with the solid front axles looks GOOD!!! [​IMG]

    Oh yeah, doing the lift on a GM IFS truck is a LOT of work. [​IMG] You might want to contact the manufacturers and ask them for a copy of the installation manual so you can see what you'll be getting into.

    We ave done a few at work. They are alot of work. It is much easier with a rack though. Doing it at home is probably imposible.
