    all of this info is for full size truck. if you have a s10 blazer then 3" body with turning up the bars will get 31" but tight.

    4" lift will do 33" no problem. but suspension is not cheep. 3" body lift will do 33" with slight trim on the corners of bumpers and stuff. might need to turn up the torsion bars a bit to help also. we do lifts at my shop and thats the best i can give you . i have seen 285s on with no lift at all but its tight.

    if you get suspension kit get the 1 or 2 peice sub frame kit. thay are much stronger than the multi bracket kits. thay just move all over the place to much rancho and skyjacker offer some good kits for ifs trucks.
