    I'm in a delima. When I bought my truck I wasn't planning on lifting it so I bought new rear spring stock height. But like most of you Now I want it lifted but only 2-3". So Do I just do a block lift or bite the bullet and order new springs? I would like to do a shackel flip but that endes up at 4". What do you guys suggest?

    I believe off road design does a 2 and 1/2" flip also. Or look at the extended shackles for the front of the rear springs.

    I have 4 inch flip and 3 inch lift springs I sag about 1 and 1/2 inches. I also only have 6 inch in front. So it might not hurt to go 4 in back and 3 up front.
