Spacers in the front...larger block in the rear.


You may need to add an adjustable track bar to center the axle...


I took a 6" radius arm drop kit to just over 10" with 10" coils in the front, 10" OUO traction blocks in the back, caster adjusters, adjustable track bar and of course new shocks.

ok, so here's what i'm thinking right now. Im looking at a ProComp 2" leveling kit and buying 8" PMF traction blocks from Stroke4Fun. I think this will give me the look that i'm wanting without going with anything too extreme. what do y'all think about this setup?
