    Why does a TC 3" lift kit come with a 4inch block? If I lift my burb 2 inches in the front will this 4" rear lift level it out or will it be too much?

    We'll just get you whatever block and spring kit you need, typically you would want an inch or more lift on the back of a 'burb to help level it, so we can set that up for you, no problem.

    Well, I ordered this stuff from you guys last week and it was shipped direct from TC. I ordered 2" springs for the front and requested a 3 inch block for the rear so that it would eliminate some of the sag. I received the 2 inch springs but they shipped box 13730 which came with 4 inch rear blocks. I measured the ride height and figured I could get by with the extra inch in the rear so I went ahead and installed everything and it sits just about right.

    The problem now is that they shipped rear shock part number 61261 which is for a 2 or 3 inch rear lift. I should have received the 61301 shocks. I have already installed the incorrect shocks so what can I do about getting the correct ones?
    Thanks

    At this point it's time to call. One thing to check 1st is to see where the shocks sit in their travel, the idea behind a taller block to get the truck to sit level is to get it to match a 2" lift so a 2-3" shock has a good chance of working out.
