Icon 4.5 hanger lift

What size rear block is best to level the truck out? Would it be a 5" block?

Yes, a 5" block will generally give you a level stance.

So would a 5" block be ok with doing 4wd launches or should I get springs in the rear? Has anyone had issues with that big of a block in the rear?

So I finally ordered this kit. Is it relatively easy to install? Any special tools needed? and about how long would you say this will take for an average person?

5" blocks will have more axle wrap than stock..you could use a Deaver rear 2.5" mini spring pack or Icon 5" springs..will have less than the taller block.
Kit will take 1-2 days depending on what tools you own and if you have a lift.

Do the rear U-bolts have a specific torque they need to be at? Other than that the rear is done and the front is all apart ready to go together. Not bad for only working on it for 4 hours. Will have it finished tomorrow

Ok one last question...Is the bolts that hold the new trac bar supposed to be only 30ftlbs? That doesnt seem like that is very much...Is that correct?
