    the rear of my blazer has the famous k5 sag. i have the
    4" lift with blocks and the rears sits about an 1" or
    lower. has anyone put in add-a-leafs to solve this?
    i know it will stiffen the ride , but just want to make sure it can be done with blocks.

    If its sagging, a shackle flip could replace the blocks and make up an inch a the same time while softening the ride with less money than add-a-leafs.

    Absolutely. With the new shop I'm moving into we should be able to do that over the phone in the near future. Web sales just didnt justify the overhead before but local work is beginning to make it necessary. Feel free to call me if you have any questions. Here is the contact info:
