They just called me and said they have the alignment done, but the truck is higher in the front than the rear and that I will probably need blocks in the rear.
I have the stock 4leaf pack in the rear, how is this possible? I will post pics later, when I get the truck back.
i had the same thing happen to me last week. my truck (after measuring) actually sits perfectly level, but for some reason it looks nose high to me. i think it's just because im used to the rake or that the hood sits higher then the top of the box making it look like that.
i ordered a pair of readylift 1" rear blocks to throw in the back, i could have them in today or tomorrow, i'll post a pic when im done. this is how my truck sits now....
and i have done a lot of research and digging on using blocks in the rear. a lot of people say that they are garbage and cause problems, but i have had a hard time finding anyone that has had issues with a small 1", mostly it's the bigger ones. i am not a hardcore 4x4er either, so hopefully i can use them and not have any issues.
