Default Level kit with rear blocks

Has anyone put on a level kit and rear blocks? If so which is a good way to go. And should I get them separate or buy them together. I have a 2wd sport and want the rear to sit up a little higher. If anyone can help that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Well first off, blocks are for leaf springs and you have coil springs. So you need a coil spacer. I am running a 0.75" TGC coil spacer with my 2.5" HBS leveling kit. There's quite a few guys on here running different height rear coil spacers. Check out Top Gun Customz website for all the size options.

I'm trying to achieve a similar set up as I tow a trailer and want the original raked rear end but also get a higher front end. Was the .75 in the rear high enough to acheive this, or should it be higher?

No, the 0.75" coil spacer leaves it pretty leveled (with my 2.5" leveling kit) This is the best picture I have to show how it sits right now... Unfortunately it's not the greatest to show you.



If you tow a trailer often I recommend getting an air assist system. I have Airlift 1000 bags on mine with a WirelessOne compressor. I've only used them once to tow so far but I love them. Just pump them up to 35psi and they keep the truck nice a level plus make the ride way better. You can get just the bags for $88 and the compressor is around $312 if you want to go with that option. There's different air bag companies such as Total Load Control out there too. If you're towing a lot of weight often they might be a better option to go with. They are an external air bag with up to 5000lbs of leveling capacity. They are quite a bit more money though.
