    Whats the best way to go if I want to increase my rigs height by about four inches, body or suspension lift? I want to be able to clear 35's so I figure 4 inches should do the trick. Right now I have 33's and there is no rubbing, does this mean I already have some type of lift or is that stock height?
    thanks

    4" is definitely safe for 35" tires. I went suspension on my 79' I wanted more ground clearnace and better articulation. My 79 wouldnt rub with 33x12.50's either. I dont why some blazers do and some dont. I do know as time goes by they sag in the front and rear.

    Are there blocks between you rear springs and your axel? If so you're already lifted. Many guys in here will agree that 33's will fit on a stock rig, so you probably don't have a lift right now. And I think everyone will agree that you don't want a body lift. A spring lift with the rear shackle flip (see main page for tech article) will give you 4" of nice tire-clearing flex, but you still might have to trim a little bit to fit 35's.
