    About how much does it cost or should it cost to get a 4" or 6" lift on my 85 blazer?? I just kind of want an idea so I know if I am getting jerked around for when I go to get it done.

    It depends
    If you get blocks in the rear its cheaper. if you get all springs its more expensive. A lift with blocks cost bout 300$ dollard i belive. An all spring one is more.

    It should be less than $600 depending on what kind of lift you get and the deal you get on it. Mine is only a 2.5" but it was $220.

    Another thing to keep in mind is, are you lifting it for just looks, or for performance? If you want an inexpensive lift for looks only, then blocks in the rear would be good. But if you want offroad performance, then they would suck with axlewrap problems. You could either do the shackle flip in the rear to get 4" of lift, or lifted springs.

    $500 for a cheap lift, $650 or so for a good one is about right. Labor is what gets you. If you can do it yourself (it is really very easy, especially if you are only going for 4"), you can get a decent one for $300. All prices are for blocks of course. SPrings are better, but you can get them later when your wallet recovers a little.
