I think you can layout with monoleafs and 4" blocks, but it's pretty unsafe. If you wanna lay out, just get a 4-link and do it right. That's just my opinion tho.

You step notchin it or bolt in c-notchin it? You wont lay with a bolt in c-notch, that's forsure. You wont be far from layin tho.

well like I said, monoleaf and 4" blocks is what others say will layout... just kinda dangerous IMO.

i did what ur gonna do man i had airride tech air over leaf setup, i had mono w/ 4inch block , bolton cnotch with 17x8 rap in 23540r17 and i was close to layin out, ur gonna get alot of wheel hoppin if u try to do burnouts or sometimes when u take of fast, if i was u i say just save ur money up and go for a 4link u said u got guys that will help u so i wait if u can.. im much happier with the 4link i dont have to worry bout the rear snappin ubolts because the rear would twist the leafs into like a s form.. well its all on u man good luck...

It can be unsafe, but It doesnt have to be. I have monoleafs and 4in blocks and I check my leafsprings for wear once a week. If a spring is going to break you would catch it by doing that. So I consider my truck to be safe. After paint I am gettin a 4link though
