    looking for a way to lift the rear of my burb 1 1/2". Have a 4" skyjacker with rear blocks. Dont want a hard ride or spend too much. Would a 3"longer shackle work?

    Nope. If you don't have a shackle flip, a longer shackle in the rear will LOWER your ride.

    Define what "too much $" is? I'm thinking lose the blocks and get some 6" springs, or ORD 4" flip, or...

    I am looking for a way to raise my K5 approx. 1 inch in the rear. I also have 4" blocks in the rear and 4" springs in the front. I have been considering ORD zero rate add-a-leaf. They will give you an inch of lift without affecting your spring rate. They bolt right to your spring pack but I am not sure if they can be used with blocks yet. Been waiting for a response in another post.

    Get a Shackle flip for the rear. I have a combo of ORD 4" Shackle flip + 3" Tuff Country springs for a grand total of 7 inches of lift in the rear. /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    on my k5 i had a 6" front spring and 5.5" blocks in rear (i really dont like them blocks too much). it sagged about 2 inches.i got some procomp add a leaves for about 60 bucks at the local 4WP store they set it up abot 2 inches higher and now it sits level. they made the rear a little stiffer which in my opinion is ok because it feels alot better in the turns. (daily driver, not rock crawler)
