    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 and height of course ) Thanks-!!

    Go to National Tire and Wheel. You may pay a few more bucks, but you will get alot better service!!!!!

    You need a new steering arm to correct for the lift. You might also need to drop the t-case a little (they sell kits for that). If you go with a six inch, then you WILL need to drop the t-case, a steering arm and a drop pitman arm. I'm gonna do 4" and I'm getting the lift, swaybar disconnects (the ones from ORD correct for lift also) steering arm and I'm gonna wait to see if I get vibrations as to whether or not I need to drop the t-case. Since I'm getting the swaybar disconnects, I'm gonna get different shocks. I'll prolly need them longer and might go with limiting straps on them. New u-joints too...I need them on the rear drive shaft. Ooo! A new steering stabilizer. It is NOT the same as a shock. I'm going with a dual cause I think later I'll go with 35's. And a steering box brace kit. Even stock blazers need them. Lots of PB Nut blaster! Let is soak on there overnight. I can't think of anything else right now. Remember...all trucks are unique...most people don't need to drop the t-case for a 4" lift. But, your's might.

    I just got a pro comp lift from 4 wheel parts last week They come with instructions but if the back of your blazer sags after you puty the lift on it will look weird until you get it fixed I got a 4 inch lift and mine looks dumb because of the saggy ass syndrome.
