    only 2" in the rear? either 2" blocks or the offroad design 2.5" shackle flip.

    A bodylift will lift the whole thing so it's impossible to do a bodylift only in the rear. Honestly, your best bet would be some 2 or 2 1/2 blocks.

    yeah the shackle flip is better but blocks are cheaper. its your preference.

    me, i'd go with the flip, but i'd go 4" instead of 2".

    why do you only wanna lift the rear? /forums/images/icons/confused.gif

    The Shackles i can do them my self, but i need to do them of 4´´ to give me 2´´ of lift???

    The Shackles will give me some Flex?? If they give me Flex my tires are going to hit again my fender /forums/images/icons/smirk.gif

    hmm... You should have the same amount of flex whether you do a shackle flip or use blocks. In both cases you are using the factory springs. Why do you just want to lift the rear??? Do you already have some lift up front or is your rear end sagging badly? If it is a sagging problem, your best bet is new or re-arched rear springs. A shackle flip or lift blocks will not fix the problem (permanently) and your spring will continue to fatigue.

    Oh and I agree that 2" blocks are probably your best bet. The shackle flip is expensive and 2" blocks aren't too bad for axlewrap. If you were going 4" I'd say definately go with the shackle-flip.
