    Make sure your front brake lines have plenty of reach. Lifts usually come with an extension. Nows a good time to pull the frontend apart and do the balljoints and frontaxle u-joints.

    I hope you have a lot of time on your hands. I did a 4in lift on my 87 blazer. We hand to cut the front spring bolts. They were froze in the bushings. Like Detroitdan said Good time to replace the ball joints and u-joints. I'll see if I can get pic of mine and post them for you.
