yah i have seen a few people do it and its a big risk.. very dangerous...

that hanger/ shackle kit i posted is very good... we have sold alot of them since they came out almost 2 years ago and have yet to have a problem with it...

I am going to buy a 2" "Add a Leaf" leveling kit the soon as I get my tax return... Its gonna be about $120 after shipping, and it's not hard to do.

As far as the back.... blocks should work with new U-Bolts.
