    I no longer have any lift blocks, I did the "poor mans shackle flip". I'm still waiting on my 1410 slip shaft for my drive shaft. So I can't drive it yet. Also, the 52" front springs dropped my front end down about 3 or 4 inches. So, Mike Sul. was right. I need to do a front spring mount like Eeyore and some longer shackles. That should get the extra lift I need.

    Gotta say "I love my wife" for being so understanding.
