Don't go with blocks... AAL or new leaf pack. Blocks promote axle wrap and will wear your stock leaf pack out quicker.

It you must and is short on cash and already have the blocks then I say go for it but if you haven't gotten the blocks...put that money into a leaf pack or aal instead.

Leave it the way it is, don't spend more money on 3" blocks. Save your money and get an AAL or a leaf pack rather than just buying more lift blocks.

is an aal something i can install myself? or would a shop need to do it, temporarily I'm gonna back down to 1" blocks and go with a 2" aal, (christmas present) and wait till summer to spend my own money on the dakars. I'm really getting sick of the bro lean and really harsh ride with the stock shocks

What do you have in the front? An aal is something you can install on your own with basic tools, a jack and a jack stand. The 2" AAL will give you a little over 2" at first so you might not even need the blocks depending on what you have up front (hopefully not 3" spacers).

Personally, I'd just live with it until next summer, swap to Dakars, do it once and do it right. Put the money that would be spend on an AAL towards the Dakars. Not my business, just seems like you're spending money on the lift 3 and 4 times because you're being impatient.

up front i have OME 886's with 5100's at 0 to support the arb bumper, and you're right, i am being impatient, i take no offense to that, that being said, will OME N182's work with the 2" blocks i currently have? or are they too long, because even with the dakars i'd keep the OME rear shocks, so that wouldn't be something i'd have to buy again
