For the front, I'd do the shackle reversal.

Blocks in the front are a bad idea.

My truck was sitting on the bumper stops, every bump in the road would make me chip a tooth. I asked for a three inch lift and got about six when it was done. I had to lower the side step to get a foot up to get into the truck. Then I had to install grab handles to not fall out getting out. And on and on... Now the front is to high and the rear looks like it is holding a ton of rock..

blocks in the front is very dangerous and also illegal on the road. get some add-a-leafs anywhere b/t $80 to $140 dollars. the best to bring ur front back.

After looking it over real good I'm just going to do new springs on both sides being that it is a saftey concern.
