Suspension question?

Is anyone running lifted springs in the front and lift blocks in the rear with stock leafs? If so is that better than just getting all four lifted leafs and going that route? Does anybody have a picture of a Toy with the first set up i stated?

If you want the best set-up, forget the blocks. Lotsa folks use em, but blocks will put a hurtin on the springs with the increased leverage they put on the spring. Also run the risk of the blocks breaking, or spitting the blocks out. Go for all four springs.

Here's a some-what recent pic of my rear end. I have some 2wd Toyota leaves in the back with a 2" block. It's a homemade block and will not break. I plan to re-do my rear springs and most likely will remove the block if it sits how I want it to. I wouldn't go with a block any taller than 2-2.5" tall, otherwise you'll be getting more axle wrap than needed.
