    Hey guys, I put some 5100s on the front and set them at 2.5! I wanted to get an inch in the back. I am gonna go with a 1" block. Do I need new shocks or can I use the existing ones. I'm eventually gonna get 5100s, but the money isnt there right now. Thanks

    You won't need new shocks with only one inch of lift in the back.

    Might I recommend an add-a-leaf for the back instead of a block? Blocks tend to promote axle wrap, and AAL's are fairly inexpensive.
