    If I order a lift from 4 wheel parts wholesale (that comes with shocks) is there anything else I will need in order to lift my Blazer properly? Also, will it come with instructions so I can lift it myself? Also, is there any difference in 4'' and 6'' lifts? (besides price) Thanks-!!

    The difference besides price for 4 and 6" lift is two inches [​IMG] I hope you get all your parts from 4wheelwherehouse!

    Also with a 6 in. Lift you will need to extend your drive lines. With a 4 inch you won't have to.... Does the 4 in. lift come with a dropped steering arm. If not it is a good idea to get one.

    Yeah you may need to order two lift kits...since they always mess up and send half the parts the two kits will equal one!

    But really if you can physically walk into a 4WPW store and get it that and open up the box and make sure you have everything then go for it. If you have to do mail order spend the extra cash and buy it elsewhere but chanes are something will be messed up (if it is their customer service is awful and so not helpful)...have you tried Summit Racing yet? They are awesome- check them! <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.summitracing.com>http://www.summitracing.com</A>
