Rear blocks or new rear springs???

Alright so I'm sure we've had a bunch of lift kit posts, but I was wondering about the 4" skyjacker suspension lift kits. There are two kits one with new front leafs and rear blocks or new front and rear leafs. I was wondering how much of a difference there was between the two and is it enough to spend the extra $400/$500 for the one with the new rear leaf springs? Also with the rear blocks do they give you a much larger one or do they give you one you just had to the factory? From what I've heard and read its not good to stack blocks so just curious. Thanks everyone

they will give you a whole new block... with a 4" lift i wouldnt worry about axle wrap or anything because the rear blocks wont be that big... i say just get the rear blocks and save yourself some cash...... let me know if you have any other questions

my rough country lift came with blocks that i had to stack on top of my factory blocks, the rear still sits 2 inches lower than the front it rides like $hit and the axle wrap is horible its def worth the extra cash to get leafs... i was always planing on getting leafs i just went with the blocks untill i can afford the springs :rain:

now how are the leaf springs that skyjacker would send? I always wondered if they are just as strong and good as the factory leaf springs, better, or worse. Now its only going to be a 4" lift would axle wrap be much of a concern. Raul wasn't to worried about it only be a 4" and the man seems to know his stuff. Just trying to get some insight. I don't go off roading all the time or even that hardcore so just seeing whats good.
