    dont do blocks. When i do my rear suspension i'll probably do AAL's. I'm not sure what height to do though.

    Blocks are gonna magnify any axel wrap your truck has, and can prematurely wear out your spring pack.

    blocks shouldnt affect stiffness. if you do AAL's, your ride will stiffen some. If your looking for flex go to All-pro offroad for a complete spring pack.

    Even though blocks are cheaper, I wouldn't do it. If you put more $$ into it the better your ride will be. Someone I knew had blocks stacked, YES I DID SAY STACKED BLOCKS, on top of each other on his taco with stock springs to achieve almost 10+" of lift. That taco had a terrible ride. Girls liked it but i thought it was rediculous. I wish I could find a pic of it.
