    [h=5]I've settled on a 2" body lift for my blazer... that will save me WAY more money in the long run than a suspension lift and a can still fit 33s with full travel. I have the 2" leveling kit from the torsion keys, and air-shocks in the rear to help with spring sagging under load.
    The rest will just be the 2" body spacing... so if anyone has any advice on this id be happy to hear it!
    thanks![/h]this is the kit:

    Looks like a good kit! Just don't forget to get an alignment done since you're maxing out the torsions. Don't mess up the steering extension and I'd find out if you need a fuel filler extension bc I didn't see one of those listed in the parts.

    Performance accessories is a decent kit.
    Normally 2" wont need a fuel filler extension, if you do it as close as buying correct size fuel hose at a local auto parts along with clamps.
    One extra I do on every body lift I put on is buying new fender washers and placing one under the bolt head and one between the body and puck, find the largest washer you can, something larger in size than the diameter than the pucks.
    Check the rubber body bushings before starting and replace them if their checking or deteriorating.
    One other item is 2" normally doesnt include bumper lifts, a good welder can fab brackets to lift the bumpers and keep them where they need to be on the body.

    I'm so glad someone said that. One of my all time pet peeves is that issue right there with body lifts not being done right. If the bumper is still if factory location, then doing the lift...well.. it just looks outright stupid IMO haha
