    Ok so my buddy wants to run these 31 inch tires that my bro sold him off his jeep. but we will need to lift it to fit them because there defintly not enough room. But now is when we reach the problem. He dosnt have enough money to buy a lift kit cus there like 1500 so were looking at a cheaper way to get like 4 inches. so here is what i have found and if any of you guys can tell me hat you think is best please let me know. We have this stuff to choose from http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/98-03-Chevy-GMC-S10-S15-Blazer-Jimmy-2-Body-Lift-Kit_W0QQitemZ280049337082QQihZ018QQcategoryZ33585QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

    Body lift and/or cutout flares (if 2dr). Aftermarket or 2wd wheels may help also.

    Cranking the torsion bars (or re-indexed keys) plus ZR2 leafs or add-a-leaf on the rear *might* be enough.

    hey i just realized that thos lift springs wont work because there for 2wd only. What do you have to do to crank up the torsion bars, I remember one of my friends saying that we could probly get like 2 inches outa that. But how exactly do you do that. I know its a bolt under somwhere up front but i dont know exactly where and how much do you tighten it? And i guess were going to do the body lift and shackels and if we have to cut some stuff out to prevent rubing.
