    i have an 84 k5. i put a 6in superlift on it and am running 35x1500 tsls. the lift has been on for about 2 months and the front is alot higher than the rear. it has 6in blocks in the back. are my springs wore out that bad? iam going to get a set of rear 6in springs with my tax money in order to get rid of the blocks. what would be better,,,,,,6in springs,,,or the shackle flip with some 2in lift springs?

    make sure your not falling victim to an optical illusion. With truck on flat gound measure at the rockers. The top has a slight taper to it that makes it look like the rear sits low.

    Yeah Grim is right. When we put a 6" lift on my bro's truck it looked like it sagged in the rear. We ended up taking one of his leafs out and added a 2" add-a-leaf this leveled it out better, but sacraficed a little flex(not alot).
