Fabtech Lift Kit

I'm looking at the Fabtech 3.5" front hanger kit with 2" rear block. Anyone have it installed and what are your thoughts?

The shocks suck. Besides that it was a easy install. I have stock rear block and it sits 1 inch high on my 350.

Thanks for the offer. 5.5 is too much, I'm not wanting to make any changes to the driveline, etc. I've decided to go with the 3.5 Fabtech kit and Bilstein 5100's all around.

Don't stack blocks, get a single block the right height for the rear.

What's wrong with stacking the blocks? Thanks

Its easier to spit one out when they are stacked vs. using a single large one. Ideally there wouldn't be any blocks.
