level kit, alignment without rear blocks?

Ok. So with the way I'm working over the next 2 weeks I only have this weekend to install my carli level kit. I opted out of the rear leaf pack for now to put that cash towards tires and wheels so now I neeed the 1" taller blocks in the rear. They won't be here till mon sometime but I can install the front part on Sun and get to an alignmeent shop on mon probably before ups shows up. So my question is if they align my front end and then I install the rear blocks will this affect the alignment?

When you put the rear up where you want it you will not have enough caster from the rear squatted alignment, get ready to pay for alignment #2.

I'd leave it alone until I had time to do it all and only get ONE alignment.

You'll be fine since that kit comes with a set of ball joint alignment cams.

Thanks Skyd Ram I IM'd OCVeloMan and he gave me some advice and instructions on what to do. Also, Skyd Ram, thanks for the good service with the lift. When I get ready for the 4.5" I'll be calling y'all again.
