    would it hurt to put zero rates on 4" blocks? I have a little sag in the butt and dont want to buy new rear springs.

    get the echobit shackle flips and loose the blocks, you can get about 5-1/2" lift from them /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Wait, you said you had 4" blocks and want to add 1" zero rates... That makes 5" the last time I counted.... 5.5" would make it sit just right! Buy the flip, stick it on in about 1 hours time and see how it looks, if the front is too low, then buy the zero rates for it and move the axle forward to help approuch angle!!!! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Turn a simple easy problem into a huge success! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
