My initial thought is that you are REALLY going to get good at replacing the front axle shafts, ball joints, and tie-rod ends.

WIth the differential passing THROUGH the oil pan on the Trailblazer, lifts of most kinds are difficult at best. If you lift the rear without lengthening the swing arms that hold the axle in place it will ride like a lumber wagon because every time the tires hit a bump the force will transfer into the mounts instead of the springs and shocks.

Body lift is ok, and it will get you a bit of sheet metal clearance. Realize that it will be a pain to install because there are so many things tied between the body and frame on our rigs.

If it were me, I'd try to stick closer to 2" max lift. You might live with that. 6" will be a nightmare in the making.

Might want to check out off road trailblazers also. Guys over there are also here and doing what can be done off-road wise for the TB platform.
