Default Lifted chevy guys...

I have a 1994 Full size blazer with a 2" lift. I have 2" blocks in the rear and cranked the torsion bars. This casuses a problem on this gen (as I am sure most of you with this gen lifted chevy's know) and give alot of negative camber. The way to solve this is buying a longer upper control arm. Problem is I cant find any anymore. I knew of one manufature before but I can not remember who made them.


Any one know of who makes longer control arms for the 88-98 Chevy/GMC 1500's?
Based on the picture below what do you think of black wheels?
Also who do you feel makes good shocks for lifted trucks?

Feel free to post pics of YOUR lifted chevy.




I know, I know. Only 31"s It needs 33"s.

You need to get a real lift kit.

Sorry but that is the best way to do it without ghetto rigging it. IMO blocks are ugly as sin under a leaf spring, and cranking the torsion bars causes a crappy ride, puts more stress on the bars (god forbid if one breaks while you are under there) and if you push them too far you can crack your frame.

Hence why I am asking about the control arms.

My Dad used to have a blazer just like that. I loved it to death


Cheap to lift too. Solid axles FTW

And those tires have little to no tread so good luck going anywhere.

6 inh springs out back. swap front to solid rear axle. grab a dana 44 or a dana 60. kits easy to put in. just get a welder and leafs. issues solved completly. then you can use the older blazer 12 inch swap runner kit.
