    Hey guys I just finished my lift on my 70k5 and i'm a little dissapointed because my rear sags about an 1.5". I went with the Tough Country 6" leaf pack up front and the 8" leaf pack in the rear and it still sits lower in the rear. Any ideas why the rear is lower? Also what can I do fix this. Thanks.

    Probably could stick in a couple lift blocks or some longer shackles in the rear.... Still kinda strange the 8" springs sit that low compared to the 6" fronts. Did you take any pre measurements to see whether the front lift is more than 6" or whether the rear is less than 8"? Are the front springs the corretct ones for your exact truck and not a big-block / diesel which is of course heavier in the front than a small block?
