    Ditch the blocks and go with lift springs, or Off Road Design's shackle flip kit.

    Most of the trucks I see with blocks in the rear develop "saggy butt" after installation of the blocks.

    Damnit! I posted a reply and it didn't show! GRRR! Anyway...get some 2 inch helper springs and throw those in the rear. I figure about 100 bucks...maybe less..

    Actually, leaves do it too. I put a Tuff Country 3" lift on my truck, and the rear sags too, and its all springs. I'm going to buy another 1" lift block (already ahve one in the garage) and stick them in there to level it out. BTW, if you have 31's on the front and 32's on the back, the difference is only 1/2", 1/2 of the height is above the hub where it doesn't matter, just makes the fender look a little fuller.

    Ok heres a cheap fix. I had the same problem with my 4"lift. I went to 4wpw and bought the 2" add-a-leaf for $50 (give or take a buck). This not only leveled out my K5, but when I take the top off the rear is higher by about half an inch. Its a very simple fix especially since you've had your ubolts off recently. Also put a 6" lift on my bro's K5 and had the same sagg in the rear and installed these 2" add-a-leafs and they leveled out his.
    I broke one of them in half about a month ago and took a long shot and asked 4wpw if they would replace it for free and they did. It takes alot of beating to brake one of these, but I also wheel my truck like I stole it. Any ?'s just ask.

    Were did you messure from? If you messured from the wheel wells you will be off by 2 inchs. F.Y.I. the tire would only make a 1/2 inch difference not 1 inch.
