    I finally finished my 4" lift, took longer than i expected to put it on, but i did it by myself, and it was the first time doing anything like this. I like how it came out though! check it out, the progression of my blazer from a few months ago.

    looks great! i have the same setup 4 inch with 33's but mine arent very wide there only 11.5 wide im hoping to put some wider tires on so it has a wider stance. looks good though good work

    Looks good. It's a great feeling to accomplish your first big mod on your truck.

    Now you have to change your name.:grin:

    Looks great. Nothing like that first lift to hook you.

    Looks good!


    Don't bother getting an alignment. If you didn't mess with the tie rod (which you shouldn't have just putting a lift on), the alignment is the same as before the lift. Alignments are necessary for independent front suspension vehicles...not the straight axle ones.:)

    my lift is a rough country 4" spring front blocks rear, the seats i bought off ebay, no, name to them but they are damn comfy and have been holding up well.


    I have a question to, my steering isnt perfect yet i gotta play w/ the drag link a lil more, but now my steering feels extra loose, a new steerering stablizer would be good right?

    haven't done my suspension yet but i would be looking at the alignment some more or maybe slop in the box.. i would think a stabilizer would definitely help "mask" the issue...
