Rough country lift question?

my 97 f350 has 4" blocks in the rear and im looking into doin a 4" lift...
Id like to do springs all the way round but i probly will end up with blocks in the rear cause of price... My question is are you sussposed to stack the 4" factory block and the 3"rc block because that seems sketchy... but the istallation directions say too do it???? Has any one done that and is it safe. I might just do the sky rsk on the rear... but havent decided yet.

Personally I would get the right size block and not stack them

How much lower is the front end compared to the back. If the front is more than 2" lower than the back you may be able to go with a 5" block and the truck will sit fairly level. If you go with a block taller than 5" you will most likely end up with a axle wrap problem.

Traction blocks from pmf work well.

Gun control is like trying to reduce drunk driving by making it tougher for sober people to own cars.
