My poor blazer finally got a lift again.

    The previous owner obviously had a lift on my blazer at one point in time. There was a 3" block on the steering arm that gave me horrible bumpsteer and mixed with wimpy stock springs and shocks that have seen there better days it made for a scarey ride going down the wonderfull GA highways.

    I sold some parts and part of one of the deals was a 4" lift kit w/cash. I got springs/shocks/ubolts/and blocks. I plan on replacing the blocks soon with a shackle flip but I couldn't wait to try out the lift.

    I had been telling my wife since I bought the blazer over a year ago that the terrible handling was due to the worn out shocks, super soft stock springs, and that steering arm block. I told her as soon as I put a lift on it the problems would go away. She always said I was just using that as an excuse for a lift but once I let her drive it with the lift installed my point was proven.

    Ahh....I feels good to finally be a little higher off the ground. Now I just need to get rid of those little 32" tires and drop some 35's or 36's on it.
