I am very much against stacking blocks. It makes your rear setup very unstable. It is one of the most unsafe things you can do. I dislike that more than even cutting coils. LOL I would either get drop leafs to go with your blocks or pull a leaf.

how low are you shootin for? because like they said stacking blocks is bad, lowering leaf's are only 150 dollars for a set of 2 belltech, that drops it 3"

Yeah, and the $150 you would spend on the leafs you would probably spend quite a bit of it(probably like $50-$75) on U-bolts big enough to fit 5" of haggard blockage.

think of your axle sitting 5" off of the leaf spring on metal thats like 2" wide and its not even one solid piece...and think of things shifting around and becoming unstable

Yeah, that former mini trucker status goes a long way.

I will tell ya that it's stupid to weld blocks together or even to stack them. Not to mention, each inch of block pushes your leaf springs closer to the ground subjecting them to catching on things. There's NO correct way to stack blocks.

If that's the only basis of your arguement, you have never seen pins fail. I have seen it on many a drop block.

Tell ya what, stack your blocks, but when your truck breaks or you cause an accident because of it, I'm gonna laugh at your ass.
