    I know axle/spring pacl lift blocks are generally frowned upon but Im looking to get cheap clearance for my grocery getter. A body lift is out of the question due to it barely having a body left..

    I have my eyes on these

    With 3 inch blocks I shouldnt need to do any other mods to make these work right? MAYBE Brake hoses?

    Also, can they be used on the front as well since its also a solid axle? ( 88 Blazer 4x4 )

    Are there any other cheap methods out there? I know shackle flips arent too expensive...

    Thanks

    I bought the TC front springs and rear blocks. I don't really "wheel" my truck though. A little mud when hunting is about it. Blocks work fine for me. I didn't have to change any brake lines but I did have to buy a new driveshaft w/ a CV joint b/c of vibration. Drives perfectly now.

    no front ever.

    dont use the cheepy junk blocks like autozone and those sell.

    and if the body is ready to fall off as you put it. why drive it on the road at all . for safty reasons thats not good.
