    How do shocks get rid of the blocks? Am I missing something?

    I have the BDS lift but I did spacers. Get the fox coil overs from the get go, or you'll just be upgrading in 6 months to a year like me. Luckily the coil overs come assembled so its a easy swap!
    As for the rear blocks you'll need a spring pack to get rid of them, also in my plans at some point.
    Also the bump stops that came with my kit were too big so I got low pro ones from amazon for $12, much nicer.

    Mmm have coils for the rear..?Spring pack.where can they be found an how much do they run?I'm running a 3 inch.just not sure if the 6 is going to be better or not..As far as bumps..?im lost.
    Not too familiar with this field.what does the db have to do with a 6 inch..?Also..in what way does the UCA help?are they a must?

    Spring packs are about $500 a pair, give or take, you have leaf springs in the back not coil. Bump stops are what limit the Up travel of the front suspension, the smaller the more travel you have. The ones that came with my kit must have been misboxed because they were always touching the LCA.
    DB is drop bracket. Means they add a lower cross member, taller steering knuckles, that's where the lift comes from to allow bigger tires. Stock UCAs are fine, after market allows more camber adjustment and better caster, they are not a must.
