    i was thinking of adding add a leafs all around my blazer to make it a tad bigger. i have the rough country 4in lift, with the 4in shocks etc..., if i add the rough country add a leaf kit all round, which is 1.5- 2 inches total, will i need new shocks ya think?

    also where can i find extended brake hoses, not the steel line part for my brakes

    The schocks should be fine but the Brake lines should be lemgthen.... GO to Napa for the Extended Rubber Brake Lines.
    Other places sell Stainless Steel Brake Lines.... Check Off-Road Shops...

    The only real way that I know of to check the shocks is to get your truck twisted like on a ramp and disconnect the shocks. I the suspension drops more than the shock will allow it too. then the shocks arre too short. you also have to check the compression side also.
