i might buy a PMF traction block set up. should I? what size block should i get

with a 4 inch zone lift kit and a 1.5 spacer in the front i'm at

44 1/2 in the front
And 43 1/2 in the rear...
my old block was 3.5 i think and the zone block is 5 inch

how tall of a block should i get made by PMF? 6.5? can any one tell me how they like or dislike there PMF Fabricated Unitized Floating Traction Block? or a product that is like it? thanks

Fabricated Unitized Floating Traction Block - Precision Metal Fab

what do most think is a good stance for these trucks? dead even? inch tall in the back? 1/2 inch?

I have 4.5" Icon/DR springs in the front and went with 5.5" blocks in the rear and it is perfect. 6.5" should be just right for you. I love my PMF setup.

Thanks man. I'm happy with it. My front bumper is peeling like crazy though. I need to pull it of, strip it, and repaint.

Nice. Thanks for getting back to me so fast. That's the tire I went with, but a 12.5 35. How many miles on your tires? You like them? Are they wearing ok?
