ok. to make a long story short i am the proud owner of an '85 blazer that is COMPLETELY rust free and only has 31,000 original miles. (relevant info) d60 front, and 14bff rear with a 2.5" lift kit and a really short driveshaft lol. i recently mounted my wheels and tires (about an hour ago) and i've got a predicament. it won't turn! the wheels are 15x10 8 lug on 2.5" backspacing. (no grinding, whohoo!) the tires are 35x12.5 BFG mud terrains. as far as articulation, the suspension will fully articulate minus MAYBE .5" in the front and rear of the front wheelhouse. (when the wheels are straight) the rear, believe it or not makes contact at the top of the wheelhouse but it's so minute (and snagproof) that i probably won't screw with it. i've racked my brain for the last hour, and here are my ideas, ranging in order from most feasible to least feasible, and i'm looking for opinions on them. 1. bushwacker cut-out flares (trying to ruin the body as little as possible, but this must be done it seems, not matter what.) 2. if that doesn't clear, i'll try a bigger lift, probably starting with ORD zero rate add-a-leaves. 3. or should i try blocks? or a body lift? or replacing the entire spring packs? i could ask these questions and get 100 different answers, realizing that, please offer me your input. it is a no-brainer to grind the calipers down and try to fit a 3.5" BS wheel or 4", but that is out of the question now, as the purchase has already been made. does anyone make a tube-style fender? you know, the reinforced kind with maybe a small amount of sheetmetal that bolt into place? i know i've seen a few on people's rigs, but i don't have the trickery at my disposal to make a set without them looking like hell.
