    if i used a shackle flip kit on my 79 blazer with the 4 inch block on it it would give it 8" of lift...how do i get 4 more inches of lift to level it out in the front...shackles maybe? :confused:

    actually if he had a shackle flip and 4" blocks in the rear, he would need an 8 inch spring in the front to make it level, if he decided to go that route

    4" of lift with shackles up front won't be safe, destroy caster angle as well.

    I run the shackle flip/4 inch block combo in the rear. I am very happy with that setup. What I am not happy with is the sagging, stiff, and just plain crappy Superlift 8 inch front springs so those will hopefully be swapped to BDS springs soon. I have to go to Sacramento to get BDS products but it is worth it. But the shackle flip/block is a good combo, you might need traction bars if you are pushing a whole lot of torque. This is the best pic that I have of this setup sorry.
