    hey everybody. i just got back from my local spring shop. my rear leafs are really sagging.the guy at the shop said he would build me the same as stock leafs with a 1 or 2in lift in the leafs to compensate and make the truck sit level. i have 4in blocks in the rear.what should i do??? a 1in or 2in lift in the springs to make it sit level???. the shop said the truck would ride better with close to stock springs and that there is nothing wrong with having blocks.they said if i get 4in lift springs it won't ride as good. please help i need rear leafs soon as i just snapped a leaf in the rear this past saturday.

    If you put stock rear springs back on the truck should not sag.

    NO!! Just say NO to blocks!! Stock ride? What the hell is stock ride? Dude I would not bandade the issue! Get replacement spring packs or some prefer a shakel flip. I have Superlift 5" rear spring packs to go with my 4" Rancho fronts. Block cause axel wrap and if you have killer traction that wrap will make your rear go BOOM! Just say no to blocks! Stock ride?? That stament kills me!
