    Source for a 2\" SUSPENSION lift?

    I just got my Blaze back from the shop, and she is looking good! I had a tear in the sheetmetal where one of the posts for the passenger mirror attaches, and they welded and painted it. I also had a new rear window crank and new driver mirror installed. Along with new bushings in the passenger door! I am in a GOOD mood! So, next on the list is a possible 2" suspension lift and 33x12.5 BFG AT's. Does anyone have any reccomandations on wheel size and the manufacter of a lift? I will NOT do a body lift! Thank you for any information that you can give me!

    Build your OWN! I like doing that cause then you can brag. Find a shop that specializes in springs and have them pull out the books and check. I can give you the numbers off of mine. Its sites right one the money at 2" and I've had it since September 6 so it settled to that 2 inces. Mine rides firm, but not like a lumber wagon. They springs i chose don't have a ton of free arch so they'll take a bigger load.

    Where did you buy them, what did they cost, can I intall them myself? Are the fronts arched or flat?

    It ran about $300 for springs,and blocks. The add-a-leafs were $45.. It was 3 years ago when I did this..

    The only one out there that makes a true 2" lift is Tuff Country. Not add a leaves but all new springs you can also get the rears as well.
