notching is used to give the axel of a vehicle clearance for when the frame isn't going to let it. Also allows the vehicle to get even lower (depending on the notch size).
Yes you do, weather a mini notch or a monster, you will end up cutting into the frame.

You don't necessarily need to cut into the body to create clearance for the notch, though it is often needed, as in the case of a mini truck where the bed floor is low and needs to be cut over the axle for the notch. However, you may need to cut the body to create clearance for the tires.

in a way yes it is. if your working from stock, to even out the rear you would only need to use drop blocks (given that you are leaving the front as is).

Notching is manily for laying a ride out more to the floor. Badass is right, for a truck, sometimes the bed is cut so that the middle piece in the axel doesn't keep on banging the bed floor when dropped. To lay frame you would have to do several types of alterations to the whole rear suspension, as well as cut out some/most/all of the bed.

usually a step notch is needed in big wheel rides and truck frames because the rear rails are usually strait with not much of an arch

use a 2" front and 4" rear drop, but your going to have to ditch them bump stops/shorten them a bit or get smaller ones.

or if your going to go all out from there, just monster notch that bitch, four link it, and cut out them wheel wells.

i agree with joe, leave the wires for cutlass, impalas, etc, etc. check out suicidedoors.com. i think they have a bolt in notch for your frame.

i really think wires on blazers looks homely as hell, but if you want to be a few inches off the ground, you might be able to get by with a flip kit and some blocks, and drop spindles and lower control arms. especially if your running some little pizza cutter 14s.
