    I've heard about 1-inch to 2 inches..
    What is everyone's experience.. I've got to get rid of the saggy butt on my Blazer..
    Or.. is this possible..
    Use 0RD zero rates with lift blocks? I know you aren't supposed to stack blocks.. but it's only a 2.5 inch block with the ord block..
    Yes or no? /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    i'll give you my add-a-leafs to try...i pulled them out because my front shocks finally flex down enough to make the truck level. the ride with them in was much rougher than i wanted.

    Thanks Russ..
    Here's my plans..
    1. Add the zero rates to my 2.5 inch lift blocks in the rear

    2. Add Add-a-leafs and zero rate 1 inch block and remove the lift blocks.


    Which would you all recommend? I really will never wheel the truck.. what would be fine for street use.. and mild recreational offroading.

    #2 becouse the ORD Zero rate are not really blocks sence they bolt to the spring pack. They are in reality a add a leaf.
