Lift blocks are the cheap way to go. they get it done... but aren't the best way. The tend to allow lots of axle wrap and have the possibility of spitting out. Also to be legal here is VA make sure yo only use 1 lift block. I don't think many people would stack these but I do know that 2 blocks won't pass inspection (that does not include the angle plate/block). That said the do work and will get the job done.

Question: Is this mostly a street truck or do you offroad as well?

Deffinately do not stack blocks and get steel blocks if you can...

You can only have 1" blocks in Va? I guess the laws are different for you lifted guys... I had 4" blocks on my s10 when it was slammed and it passed... Reguardless of the situation, lift/drop, a block is a block and the effects are still there...

I have some 4" angled blocks I'll pitch to cheap...

Why not just go w/ a small block and a couple add-a-leafs? I could imagine the kick out rate is a little higher on lifted trucks than it is on lowered trucks...

blocks will be fine. How high you trying to go?

And not 1" blocks but a singular block, just one.

add-a-leafs or shackles are a better way to go.

add-a-leafs will prob give you more lift than you want though, youll be back to square one when you started trying to get it to sit level, you should be ok with a one inch block if its mainly a road truck, my 3inch is working ok but i do have alot of axle wrap which sucks......
