Re: 1" lift blocks

Bob,
How does one determine lift height? By tire size? Looks? If I want 35's on my 72 Blazer, is there a minimum I should have? I dont want to have to climb too much to get in and out.

Typically 4" (or maybe 6") lift minimum for 35" Tires. Going to also depend on your wheel backspacing.

Re: 1" lift blocks

I have a 3 lift on mine with 33 BFGs. Take note that most tires differ in size. Mine say they are 33 but Im pretty sure they are only 32.5 actual. The 3 was a substantial increase in height over stock due to saggy springs.
