    1" zero rate that bolts to the spring pack is fine. Your pinion angle will change slightly also. Check Off road design.

    Yes and NO . Not a traditional block , you want a zero rate . A zero rate bolts to the springpack , becoming a part of it . That way is safe .

    Search zero rate , and you will see what we are talking about .

    Thanks for the info guys, I have been surfing this site for a few weeks now, and have been wondering what a Zero Rate was. And why everyone seems to have them. Offroaddesign explained this well. :waytogo:
