    2 blocks to drop the rear 5-6

    I know this will get some response. I plan on stacking 2 blocks in the rear to get the drop i want, since i have air shocks i should be able to pick it up a little. I have 4s in right now and plan on another 1 or 2. It might be close to the stop then but i can take that off. Can someone tell me if they have done this or if they know someone who has done it. thanks benc

    I have heard of stacking 2 4in blocks and no problems. It was on a 2.8 so alittle less power.

    Never stack block. It's just a rule of thumb for safety. If you want the extra 2 inches, just get lowering leafs, take a leaf or 2 out, or have your current leafs de-arched.

    Three ways to change your stance through leafs and be safer than stacking blocks.

    Ever seen the rear end of an s-10 come out while going down the road? If not, and you want to, I suggest stacking as many blocks as your heart desires.

    IF you don't want to mess your ride up, go ahead and get new leafs, de-arch them, or take some leaf's out of the pack.


    :nono: Don't stack blocks :nono:

    if you want bigger blocks go to a pep boys near you they sell 5.5 inch blocks that are for raisin a 4x4 up. they are angled an id imagine that you could us them to drop the back of your s-10 they are like 75 bucks for the pair and they might have 6.5 blocks too but i cant remember. the guy said somethin about stackin blocks but i wasnt gonna do that. just go an have em look it up in the catalog, i think they were made by trailmasters, but not sure

    Before I bagged my blazer it was lowered 6 in the rear. I got a 3" drop leaf dearched it 2" at the eyelets and used a 1" block. If you stack blocks or use to large of blocks you will wrap your axle up.

    Fun huh? I had a friend who had a nissan, and he had like 2 3 inch blocks, and he hit a good pothole and just ripped everything out.. that was scary b/c we were going like 50 mph.
