I thought it was bad to stack blocks? I took leafs out the 2 helper springs. Could I have left them in? Not sure on that

No very common mistake. most ppl assume stacking them is bad. say you have a 4" solid block its no better than 2 2" blocks. check out this thread there is a quote straight from icons web site about stacking blocks.

noob questions

I too recently bought a rc 8" kit with the block. My truck sat 4" lower in the rear. I called and complained but they said that my springs had sagged that much ( I said BS). When you take out a 3.5" block and replace it with a 7" block the truck only goes up 3.5" but the folks at RC couldn't understand that. I ended up getting RC 8" rear springs but the rear still sat 1.5" low. So I added a 1.5" block and all is well. Hope this helps.

I retract my previous statement. Didn't know it was a 6" Put an add a leaf in it that'll get you about 2" more and I have 2 installed on mine and they haven't really stiffened the ride up much. If you decide to stack them or get an 8" then I would invest in some traction bars.
