    Ok, so i have an 02 dbl cab with a 3inch Revtek on it. the lit is in good shape but i want to improve on it a little bit. right now the rear is blocked, i'm not too happy with the blocks and i'm thinking about scrapping that and going with an OME spring pack in the rear with bilsteins or OME shocks. yes? no? also, i have no idea what to do to the front. what can i replace, repair, etc. to make the street ride a bit better but still be good off road. can i get new shocks but leave the springs and vice versa? i'm new to the Taco thing and i could use some help from yall. thanks.

    i would get rid of the blocks and get a add a leaf if you wanted more lift you could go with a 2in body lift

    Ditch the block. Also ditch the stock leaf springs. Go get a set of Deaver leaf springs.

    yeah, i'm not liking the blocks much and the AAL was something i've been looking into. i'd like to do whole new pack but right now its now in the cards. i dont have like 6/7 bills to put towards that. i cant say that i've heard bad things about the AAL though. Body lift isnt something i would want on there for now. i'd rather just go through and rebuild the lift that's on it. with the AAL, and reccomendations on who to go with for those??

    Also, ive got a mean squeak coming from the front, it;s nothing serious but it butgs the hell out of me. its not the bushings, it sounds like its coming from under the hood or it might be the hood. and ideas??
