    My truck has the saggy butt syndrom. Im running 4 inch blocks in the rear. I want to go to a shackle flip soon but its not in the budget right now.

    My question is this: Is it ok to run zero rates in the rear while using blocks?

    My girlfriend wants to get me something for Christmas and I was thinking that a set of zero rates would be a good present 'cause I could use em and they aint expensive.

    What's y'alls opinion?

    i would rather run an add-a-leaf if you've already got a 4" block with stock springs, but i dont see it being unsafe.

    it seems like it would be alright, but i would be a little concerned since thats alot of "block". i think i would wait til the shackle flip to put the zero-rate under it.

    Zero rates are the same as add a leaves. Running that much block is getting unsafe. I have pics somewhere of nasty stuff from running a lot of block with any real hp. I would definitely consider a flip kit or springs.

    X2. It would just be too unsafe.

    Thanks for the replys yall. I'll wait until I get the flip, which may come sooner that I hoped.
