    For the front? I'd say that although 1" is borderline unsafe, 2" is definitely unsafe.

    No, it is for the rear. I currently have a 2" block. I want to replace it with a zero-rate so I can move the axle back some, my driveshaft is too long and bottoms out.

    Why do you feel they are unsafe they are part of the spring just like any leaf in the pack. It is just like adding more leaves to the pack to get lift. A block just sitting in there can move and pop out because of the steering forces acting on the spring pack but since it is bolted to it it doesn't pop out like a block. Just wondering I don't see any thing unsafe. ORD certainly wouldn't risk his lively hood on something if there was the possibility of it hurting someone.
