    Hey People,
    I want to lift my stock 89 K5, 4"(suspension) and run 33s.
    I usually tow my 18' ski boat with some recreational offroading. Any suggestions for kits, tires(70% street use),will it be necessary to lengthen the driveshafts? Will handling and /or ride quality suffer appreciably ? I'm new to this group and just want to say the knowledge and helpful attitude is incredible. Can't wait to log on each night!
    Steve, count me in on any revenue generating ideas!

    Do a search on lift and or 4" - if you still have questions after reading for hours I will be surprised.
    You will find:
    -No Blocks
    -Rancho RS 5000 or RS 900o shocks
    -lower transfer case
    -many spring rates to chose from
    -and No blocks!
    Tires - I am lookin at buying Big O XT. Others are to (I think solowookie). Post was labeled 'check these out'
    or something. I'll post if I can find it.

    You shouldnt need to mess with the drive shafts with a 4" lift and may not even need to lower the tcase...4 sure

    Also consider the shackle flip in the rear. Search on this also.
    Have you looked at Project Vehicle UAV on this site? Good info and suggestions. If you have lots of
    $$$ go check out the Potent Rodent on http://www.coloradok5.com/forums/showflat.pl?Cat=&Board=blazer4x4&Number=133322&page=11&view=collapsed&sb=5
