removing rear blocks?

I am thinking of lowering my truck 3 inches and was wondering if I could just remove the rear blocks and just run the springs on the axle? I have a 6 inch lift on it right now with 3" springs and 3" blocks in the rear and was curious if I could just get new front springs and remove the rear lift blocks?

thanks,

Sam

Yep you sure can. I ran just a 5" ICON rear spring (no block) with mine.

Did you remove the rear blocks. If so would you be interested in selling them?

Rolling a 15.50, I'd recommend keeping it that high. I had 14.50s on mine with 5~6 inches and got contact. Even with the 315s on 16x10s I've done the trailing edge wheel opening mod.
