    Hello all,

    I just purchased an 88' K-5 blazer and I am looking to put a 4" to 6" kit with 33" to 36" tires. ***Disclamer*** I don't know much about automobiles. I have been fixing minor odds and ends with my blazer - nothing serious. Will I be able to handle installing a lift kit by myself or am I going to need to have a garage do it? I live in Durham just south of south point mall.

    If you have any suggestions please feel free to respond.

    Thanks,

    Jeremy

    What would you recommend for a kit especially a beginner kit? My knowledge of trucks is extremely limited. I have a socket set that I recently purchased but that is about it. Another problem I have is I really don't have a place to set my blazer long enough to work on it.

    If I had to have someone from a garage do it - what do you think they would charge me?

    Thanks for the help

    Anyone recommend a garage local to Durham/Raleigh that could install a lift kit for an '88 Blazer?

    Thanks.

    I know a guy in Jacksonville, about 1.5 hours from Raleigh that does awesome work. Was reasonable to when I was there. If you want I'll find the number.
