just added 4" blocks and pulled a leaf on my 94 s10 and wow that lean shows more n more the more you lower it, i measured and the left side is an inch lower than the right(bad lean right there) and i determined this by measuring the back lip over wheels, so im thinking maybe i could put one of the 3" blocks i have bak on the left side and that should pull it up to level with the right side i think....also im bottomoing out on bumpstops like crazy and i want to notch now, what notch should i use? and where should i buy it, i want a good one for cheap preferably....thanx

ok so back to the lean problem i have....i looked at the bumpstops and was thinking, the left one is sitting on the stop and the right stop has only an inch clearance...im kind of afraid to cut out the bumpstops in that maybe that left side is going to drop even more than it is now..idk what to do if it does ill be mad...do y'all think if i replace both shocks in the rear if that will somewhat correct my lean in the rear?! only the rear leans on mine front is fine...or maybe just puttin a new shock on the left side to lift it maybe and not the right..?!?!?!?!?!please help its gettin on my nerves when i look at it

If you only have the lean in the rear, I'd definitely say it's a bad shock. Tricked96sdime,On pulling leafs, pull the center 2 springs leaving only the main load spring and the overload spring. With a 4" block you should get right about 6" of drop.

That's what I have on my truck now. My '94 was 4" blocks on pulled leafs though.

yeah well i only pulled the one leaf in each pack on mine but it gave me about 6" or so but i mean itll most likely shoot up to 5.5" when i get the new shocks on it bcuz my rear shocks are weak as hell and the left one is pretty much gone!
