First off...Welcome to the forum.

Secondly, please take the time to review the forum rules (link in my signature). You might also want to review the basics of how a forum works. Hijacking threads is against the rules. Your question was not only posted in a thread from June, but has nothing to do with the OP's build. Please review the rules and do not hijack threads.

*Moved to a new thread for this discussion*

86blazerbuddy, what does your lift consist of? There are a few different ways to go 4". Hopefully your lift does not just do it with blocks, but rather with 4 new leaf springs.

I cringe whenever I hear of someone putting blocks in the back!
