    1" rear blocks

    I have Bilstein 5100s in the front and rear. The front are set to the second highest setting. I was thinking of adding a 1" block in the back and started searching. It looks like you can go anywhere from $45 (cheap eBay blocks) up to $100+.

    Does anyone have recommendations an a decent but not over priced set of 1" rear blocks?

    Thanks.

    Can I ask why you would put the fronts on a "lifted" setting if you wanted the rake?

    I didn't know before hand what it would be after installation. I have a topper and have about a 1/2" of rake right now. Sometimes it looks like it sags.

    I do know that the ride has improved, especially the back end.

    Ahhh. Makes sense.

    Yea, I'm guessing blocks would be less work than re-doing the front sets.

    And I agree on the much improved suspension regardless of the rake settings.

    Is this a 2wd truck? Or 4wd.

    2wd put a 2 1/4 or 2 inch block in there.

    4wd. Take out the 1 1/4" block and goe with a 2 or 2 1/4.

    4wd. I found a 1" block on eBay but I don't think my u-bolts have an extra inch of travel. I am going to see if I can find just the 2" blocks. I will have enough threads with a 2" block.

    Find 2” blocks or hot up a local spring shop. They can re-arc your springs or throw another leaf in to achieve desired height.

    Please don’t stack blocks, not the safest method.

    This is probably what I am going to buy. Basic and I don't have to stack blocks.
