    1\" add-a-leaf in a IFS truck rear spring pack questions

    Okay, I am sick of my Blazer sitting an inch lower in the rear. Looks stupid. I already have 1.5" blocks under there, and I am not to turned on by the idea of a 2.5-3" block under there. I am interested in a set of your 1" add-a-leaf/blocks. I asked you about it a few months ago, and you said it would be doable, but I would like your ideas on what I would have to do to make them work. I will be having a suspension place do it, so they know what they are doing, just would like to know what to expect and tell them about. Thanks.

    The only reason why there would be any problems using the 1" Zero Rates would be center pin sizes, and the IFS springs should use a 3/8" or so pin so you should be fine, if not center pins aren't to hard for a suspension shop to come up with. It's a toss-up whether you're better off stacking the height up, or just going to a single 2" block, but with a 2-3" block,you might have to run a shim to bring the pinion back down, so the 1" would probably work well for you.
    Thanks

    Oh yeah, when are you going to be putting them online? I was telling a buddy of mine about the, but he couldn't find them online. I looked, and sure enough, not there.

    Also, what would be the part number I wanted to use so I could order some?

    Thanks.
