Do I need for a 6-8 inch lift for the rear of my 99?

Well from one Toddy to another..........I just fought this battle and won. They sent me a 2 1/4 drop with my 6" lift (4 1/2 blocks to level it out in the rear) and I dropped all the way to 1 1/8" of shims to get the vibs to go away. Mine is a 99 as well. Hope that helps.
