    Has anyone done this and what did it involved? Was it worth the time and money just to get away from having a rear block?

    Go for it. It is definately cheaper than buying new springs.

    Definately worth it....I combined mine with 2" Tuff Country rear springs to give the ass end a bit of a lift. Sits level with the top on.
