    Plan on installing Toytec coilovers set at 2.5" for the front and debating about using 1" blocks for the rear. Don't plan on doing any Off roading just mainly street driving. Will the rear blocks affect the ride quality? Any reviews of rear Skyjacker 7000 series shocks? Can't find a place that sells Bilsteins due to Backorder.

    the only problem with blocks that few people have come across is that it can cause "axle wrap" where the rear SA bounces up and down violently over bumps due the the increased high center.

    However, there is nothing wrong with blocks as long as they are 2'' and smaller. I have owned many trucks with 1" blocks installed and have absolutely no problems. Try to get a block like the ones from low ranger off road with a taper to it to keep your driveline angles nice and sweet.

    o and one more thing....they are wicked easy to install

    I just ordered rear Bilsteins like 2 days ago from Downsouth. Got a smokin' deal and already have a UPS tracking number. If they've sold out and you want shocks now, get OME.
