    I was wondering if I add one leaf to the front and rear for a 2" lift will I have to do any other modifications? It will be done to an 82 Blazer. I want a higher truck without having to do the driveshafts b/c I dont have the money but I have a leaf spring pack that I can strip for a lift. Also I figure since I am taking the rear off to add a leaf to fix one that is broke why not give the whole truck a little lift by adding an extra one to all 4 corners.

    thanks also my friend told me that I can jack up my truck and the suspension droop would be as much as I can lift it without doing my driveshafts is that a good way to do it?? Or should I do it like that with the axles unbolted from the springs?

    it depends on how much articulation you have, and how much drive shaft is left
