Say I got some lift blocks fabricated for a First Gen Lego. Where would I put them. I know sounds like a dumb question.....

Depends on how big of a block you want to go with. I think you can get away with an inch and a half to two inch blocks just on top of the struts, but any more than that and you will have to make subframe and crossmember blocks as well. Dropping the subframe requires extending the steering shaft and possibly the dogbone mount bracket on the transmission.

Like I mentioned in your other post, SJRs lifts come with 18 pieces total (I didn't use 2 because I think they are for manual trans cars, and mine is an auto).  Engine blocks, trans blocks, rear sub-frame blocks, and strut blocks.  Basically wherever there is a bracket under your car, you install a lift block, more or less.
