How much of a lift will s10 blazer leafs give me, my leafs are sagging hardcore, and I want a set of leafs to get me around stock height, maybe a little higher, until I can buy a full lift

Get the Pick-up ones!!! Designed to carry a load, helps out more!! Think about it, the blazer is designed for a passenger or two, the pick up ones are designed for more wieght, for loads being carried in the bed. Can give you 3-4 inches!! Thats what I run, I got 3 from a 2wd model.

I dont want to reallylift it right now...well, i do, but then I would need new tires, new front springs, and new shocks all around, to level it out.

I cant afford all that right now. I just want a cheap solution to make my jeep level, for now...

Yea, use one like an AAL in your pack. If you have any friends who have a lowrider, chances are they pulled theirs to go lower, "freebie" rofl But I would do a AAL, S-10, or Dakota, be cheaper, plus blocks break way tooooo much Shocked seen it happen a lot wheelin.

Hell try the junkyard, my buddy picked up a set for $35!! Look around in the junkyards. I've heard people having problems with the Blazers?? In case like mine you use the main leaf that bolts up and use the rest of the S-10 for the others and build a new leaf pack.

If you are just looking to get back to stock height, the S10's won't work...they will net you lift. If you just want some arch back in your stock springs go to a junkyard and grab a set of springs from another Cherokee. Then take them apart. To do that put a c-clamp (2 total) on either side of the retaining pin and remove the pin. When you slowly take off the c-clamps (the key word is slowly...you are releasing the tension on the spring pack)the spring will come apart.

Now, take the top spring (the one with the eyes) and cut the eyes off. An angle grinder works well, but if you feel like a workout, a hacksaw will do. Then just install that leaf into the existing pack as an AAL. It should put you back to stock height.

Very low cost solution and you get to play with tools on a Saturday afternoon. Mr. Green
