I dont know for sure but I thought front blocks were bad because the weaker front spring cant handle the extra leverage of the blocks and it would effect steering.
Im curious about the shackles because Im running 6" spring lift (procomp) and I was wanting to go 2" more with shackles if it didnt make the steering unsafe...

First one is pure crap, second one is fine you will need longer shocks and a adj track bar.

Shackle will not be unsafe if quality oness are used.

IMHO, I woudn't have either one of those.

I had this LEVELING KIT on my '01 and it was great. Easy to install and a good ride.
