    ok i have asked some questions before, but i think this is my last post of questions.
    1) with add a leafs, will i need longer shocks w/ a 2 inch lift?
    2) i have lift blocks front and rear, are the add-a-leafs still usable eventhough i have blocks in the front and rear?
    thanks a lot

    IF YOU HAVE LIFT BLOCKS FRONT AND REAR, TAKE THEM OUT! RUNNING FRONT BLOCKS IS NOT A GOOD IDEA AT ALL, SPEND THE MONEY FOR LIFT SPRINGS. STEERING FORCES AND BRAKING FORCES ARE HUGE ON THE FRONT AXLE.

    You may need longer shocks, you'll just have to measure them up and see if they'll allow enough droop after you raise it up. You'll also want to check your ubolts to make sure they have enough length to work with the extra inch.

    Putting the 1" "zero rate" with a 2" block in the REAR would be fine, NOT in the front.
    Thanks
