It sits on stock 98 blazer wheels with 265 75r15 with no clearance issues , but i need help pickin out the right shocks. Im going to be pulling a boat and want the best possible shocks to put on it. Red Baron i remember i saw you talk about shocks once but i cant find that thread any longer. Anyone please help . ALL suggestions on shocks will be welcomed thankyou

Myself and RedBaron both use Bilstein heavy duty shocks from AutoZone.
The shocks we use are $59.00 each (special ordered) they will take about 5 days or less to get them and you can order them online. (AutoZone does not charge for standard shipping)

You want Bilstiens for the 2wd S10 (non ZQ8 and ZR2) RedBaron uses front shocks from a fullsize truck because of the lift he has, you just have a spindle lift so stock size shocks will work fine.
RedBaron uses stock size shocks in the back because he has is a Leaf over axel in back so there is know need for a longer shock, I on the other hand use shocks from a ZR2 in the back because i've used a different technique.

The thread your looking for is here:

PeeWee is almost right on the money. Ya, my shocks are availible at auto zone but I got the fronts at Kar-Tek in Riverside. They cross referance to a 91 to 99 Chevy Suburban 2500 2wd. Only use them with a coil lift. I only recomend the Bilstiens. They are a very good gas charged shock with multivalving for all terains, street or dirt.

Haha...old man!!

For the last week, I've looked through this forum a dozen times just researching 2wd lifts, and I've got to say that you have managed to put together a rather informative bit of information. May think about building a lifted 2wd after i finish my bagged one ;)
