Fixed Sagging Finally!!!!!

I finally got my trucks rear up and man does she look better!!! Its barely noticeable in the pics but a measurement at the front tire to fender clearly shows a 4" increase in rear. I removed the rear sway bar as it was just binding up. Installed some shock extenders and Top Gun Customs 4" rear blocks. Did not want to stack blocks but it came to that. I ordered custom 22" U-bolts from Stengel Bros to button it all up. Well heres a before and after pic and the set up Will get better pic tomorrow once shes all cleaned up!!

BEFORE

AFTER

Blocks/U-bolts

I think you need to look into doing either some performance metal fab or one up offroad traction bars if you gonna go that much block. Even with that wide top block , you must have some pretty wicked axel wrap under acceleration (made worse by the torque from high HP tunes)

Sick!!! What material are the blocks? I take it they are steel? Why not just run some weld on all 4 corners of the block if you feel unsafe about about the stacking. Truck looks better with the bead locks off. They were making your rims looks mall. Time for some Amp steps.

The blocks are steel. yeah the angle of the pic is not the greatest but it is definently not sitting low anymore in the rear. A quick tape measure shows the exact increase of the block. It seats dead even with the front. Sorry for the bad angle!!
