    I had 4" blocks on mine before i did the shackle flip.When i pulled them off, both locating holes for the springs on top where broke out.They might have been cheap blocks but it's kind of scary too me.Don't think 2" blocks would be too bad though.Can see where your coming from on the price of rear springs.Personaly i won't use blocks again if i can help it.

    You might think about going with a 2-1/2" shackle flip from offroaddesign.com that way you could keep your stock springs. I will be doing a 4" shackle flip this fall when I redo my suspension.

    Didn't know they made a 2" version.I have the 4" and was worth every penny.It would be cheaper then new springs.If you get there flip get there greasalble bolts too.They make a world of difference.

    Use the rough country 2 inch lift kit w/ blocks and shocks I've got one and it rides a little softer. The more leafs you add in the back the stiffer the ride.
