    Companies like Alcan and National Spring will make any size lift spring you want. Not ideal but pretty common: you could also get 2" or 4" springs and add a 1" block, assuming you're talking about the rear springs.

    Most springs are rated for p/u's...when you install them in a blazer (esp. w/ the top on) they will not give as much lift as they clame because the rear end of a blazer is heaver than a p/u. If you want 5" lift get 6" springs. If you want 3" lift get 4" springs. Even going 1" higher it still might sag in the rear.
