    I have a 4" Rancho lift on my 76 K10 and the front end is up a few inches higher than the back because of the worn out springs in the rear. Is an option to do the 2.5 shackle flip in the rear to bring it back level. But I am concerned about having the 4"blocks and 2.5" shakle flip. Does anyone have any ideas?

    I would also recommend using the minimum block size so the 4" flip would be best. The only concerns with stacking blocks with flip kits is watching the pinion angle since most blocks are angled and it can move the axle forward in the well for a couple reasons. One is some blocks have an offset pin, and the more lift you add, the more it moves forward with a block and a flip.
    With a 2" block you should have minimum problems.
