    It will "work" but blocks promote axle wrap. The bigger the block, the more axle wrap. Not the end of the world, in fact there's a member here running a 6" block.

    You'd be better off with a new leaf pack, like the All-Pro 3" pack, if you have the $$.

    I have a 2" rear block and it sucks, the only benefit of the block is that the rear rides like stock, not harsh in the slightest

    Axle wrap? Enlighten me please. I'd be temporary if I did. Untill I could afford the all pro pack or something else. Just after buying spindles and rear 5150s and sone new tires. That extra 400+ is going to suck.

    Why's the 2 in block suck?

    Also this axle wrap is it worsened for offroading vehicles or just as likely if you never offroad? I'm a 90% on 10% off road driver
