Steering shaft question on a 2" lift

Post by Captn. Crunch » Mon Apr 07, 2014 12:43 pm

Just ordered 3+1 leaf pack for 94 S-10 blazer. Went with Blazer bundle due to the fact that I pack my van full of Boy Scouts and pull a trailer so I went with the extra 100lb. rating. My question is will I need to change out the steering shaft on my 99 AWD with 2" body spacers.
Also would like to know if there is any difference between my 99 and the sticky'd 2" lift on an 03 in reference to the bolts required for the body spacers?
Thanks

No longer steering shaft required and no difference in hardware. Stock length body mount hardware is 96mm length so 140mm-150mm for the additional 2" spacer is good.
