and if you do find a ifs lift it will be expensive and a waste of money, with big tires you will break cv's just do a sas

it's about the same price to go with a d44 - d60 sas... leafs or cols would be about the same really. depends on the skill of the fabricator really

had an 86 s-10 blazer, spent too much money and time and broken parts with the ifs lift. looked ok, but pretty much sucked my left nut. go the route i should have, and go strait axle, prolly cheaper and more realiable/capable.

I got a 97 s10 and I got a price from NSOR and it was $1900 for a 5 inch trail master IFS lift. I just want a bit of a big bigger tire like a 31 maybe 33's. I wouldnt be able to do the SAS myself so i think it would end up costing large cash. Plus i dont do any crazy 4x4ing just frs type deal to go camping. Would anyone here know what a SAS would cost and how much shit I would have to mod?

XJ/YJ D30 is about the right width and bolt pattern for an S10. I wouldn't waste any money on an IFS lift, they all suck ass and the amount of wheel offset required to clear the components causes accelerated wheel bearing/ball joint/steering linkage wear.

you shouldnt need to cut the fenders to fit 31's i have a stock s10 blazer and it has 31s on it. barly any rubbing
