    Okay, before I sink some money into the Blazer... which of these would be the best suspension lift for the money?



    Thanks! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    You really should add BDS to the list. Very affordable, and a no questions asked lifetime guarantee. They are also very soft riding and have very good flex. What more could you want? /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Voted for TC only because BDS wasn't on there.

    What part #s would I need from BDS for a 2" or 2.5" lift? I can't seem to find what I'm looking for on that jdsoffroad site. /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    BDS are 425 lbs/in AFAIK, EZs are 295... those numbers may be for the 4" lift models... but are useful for comparison. HD tuffcountrys are 395...
