    With 35 inchers you would be best to get 4:56 gears . . .

    The fornt springs should look like an upside down U (negative arch) these are stock springs. If they U up, then they are lift springs..

    Check out www.ntwonline.com They have great prices on lift kits and tires there. You will have to go with a 6" kit if you want to run the 35's Go with a super ride or soft ride kit for the front springs. I would stay away from 6" lift springs in the rear though because of the arch of these springs they ride really rough, especially if you take remove the top of your Blazer! For the rear I would go with ORD's 4" shackle flip for the rear along with a 2" add-a-leaf kit that way there you will beef up the rear springs a little bit and you will have a good ride and good flexability. Hope this helps! Goodluck!
