I'm lifting the front of my truck more by cranking up the coilovers and the rear is too low so I need to lift the rear 3-4 inches. So what are the pros and cons of blocks vs. drop shackles and hangers. New leafs are not an option. Also can you do a shackle flip on nbs trucks? Thanks

well as for blocks (other than the springs i installed last weekend that is all i have had)

PROS:
cheap
easy and quick to do
will get you up where you want

CONS:
cheap
axle wrap
i hate seeing them when i look underneath

there is a place in town here that makes custom hangers.... im sure there are people there too, but the ones ive seen dont look too bad if you are only going for a few inches.

I would either go w/ the ORD shackle flip, or a 2" shackle and like 2" block...i hate the way 3" and bigger blocks look...either way wouldn't be that expensive.
