    yeah i would definently try losing the blocks first, whether it be a spring lift or a shackle flip(do the flip :D).... i have nasty axlewrap even without blocks... might have to get some traction bars, they prevent the axle housing from rotating

    the reason you've got axle wrap is because of the blocks.. ditch them first then see how it is..

    no :doah: throw your money at me first. those suck. do the flip or springs. i like the flip it rides better and gets more flex. few vendors out there for them but i run this one.http://offroaddesign.com/catalog/shacklekit.htm
