icon lift kits

Does anybody know how much more of an actual lift the icon 7" is vs the 4.5"

I read on icons site that the 4.5" comes with 5" rear blocks and the 7" comes with 6" blocks.. So is the front the same way only an inch difference as well?

Im putting the 4.5" kit on mine now, it does come with a 5" lift block in the rear, with a 2.5" spacer under the spring, and 37's, the fenderwell right over the tire is exactoy 48" off the ground. I didnt measure before, but id say its right around an honest 4.5" higher than it was before...the spacers were already on it.hope it helps. If you want me to measure anything for you let me know.

If you use the blocks that come with the icon set up you will have the cali squat thats why I had some pmf blocks made. I know that for my truck to sit level with the icon 4.5" kit I used a pmf 5.5" block and with icon 7" springs I used an pmf 8.5" block and I was 1/2" higher in the rear.
