    The cost has several varying factors. Such factors include the condition, mileage, options, gas or diesel, standard or automatic, 5.0 or 5.7, etc. You get the idea. I would guess in my opinion, you could probably find one on an average of $7000.00. For this old of a vehicle, expect them to be in excellent shape and therefore maybe pay more. Just an opinion.

    Yes, 35's will fit with 6" lift with NO modifications.
    Yes, Skyjacker makes lifts for GM's from 2" all the way up to 8".
    Superlift makes the tallest suspension lift on the market as of now. They have the whopping 12" front springs and 8" rear springs to ride on 4" blocks.
    Both Superlift and Skyjacker are EXCELLENT brands. But, there are quite a few lift kit companies out there. The best would have to be your opinion and preference on what you hear and see from other people. Ask around. My 85 K30 rides on 4" front AND rear Skyjacker springs. My 82 K30 rides 6" front Tuff Country springs and blocks in the rear.

    Really starting to become a demand for them in the Kansas City area. I just bought an 89...20,000 miles on complete off frame restoration, new Am. Racing w/ 33X12.5s, 2 inch lift (blocks....I know the front one's going soon...rear one later)350TBI, 700R, 3.42s, new interior, all power, cruise, CD...Silverado....cherry....$8800. There's a 90 at the same place, same setup but the wheels and lift, no visible rust but I crawled underneath...in fact I reached underneath while on my back, to pull myself under it, and got a handful of flake....$7900. He'll sell it for sure...probably for around $7500.

    85 Burb and an 89 Blazer
    One just for fun, one simply for pleazer

    What? There's still 90 or 91 Blazers w/ only 85k on them? Could of fooled me... Try like 130-200K LOL.... then they'll still be between 5,000 and 8,000.... Got my 87 for 3000... only rust is on the driver's rocker... 160k... sometimes you gotta find the right deal or seller.

    I got my 90 jimmy in pretty good shape...the hood and top need painting, the interior is in very good shape, the engine still running strong. Paid $4,000 for it with 124,000 miles. No rust either. I looked for a long time. I'm glad I was patient. I just got skyjacker springs after a lot of research. I was impressed with them. If you want to know why email me and I'll share. Mainly has nothing to do with the product as it does thier intent.

    1990 GMC Jimmy 350/TH700R4/NP241/10 bolts, 4" skyjacker lift, 35x12.50R15 BFG All Terrains on 15x10 AR Baja's, Flowmasters.

    I have a few friends that had bad luck with Explorer Pro-Comp IFS lifts... I would say stay away from them...

    Got my 89 Jimmy for $7200 with 105k on odo. It is cherry,
    interior is excellent, no mods, strong 5.7L, 700R4, power
    everything, no rust anywhere (living in east central Oklahoma,
    we don't see very much salt on the roads). I know where there are two 90 models for sale, one is cherry for $7500.
    The other is in good shape, but not perfect $4995.

    Got my 89 Jimmy with 140 on it for $3500. It is in good shape overall. As far as lift alot of guys say BDS is real good. That is what I plan on.
