    you mentioned blocks in the rear (eck)...what do you have in the front? You can do a homemade shackle flip in the rear for 4" lift and ditch the blocks...add in a 1" zero rate for 5" and trim the fenders a bit. I got a set of 4" superlifts from a friend for my front and a 3/4" zero rate, then did a homemade shackle flip in the rear using the front spring mounts from a 2wd truck and a 1" zero rate. I can fit in 35s without rubbing but it is close. I will be trimming the fenders when I put em back on (long story).

    best option: shackle flip in the rear (to get rid of those blocks)... and trim the fenders to fit the new meats.
