They probably saw you coming from a mile away. Are you still planning to go with the blocks? And who is it that you have working on your jeep?

what about pictures and the left over parts, we still need to see all of this stuff so that we can point you in the right direction atleast.

How to post pictures ==> http://jeephorizons.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=1495

I'll reiterate...I highly recommend against using 2" blocks in the rear. They WILL eventually cause you problems with axle wrap and invert the springs...especially if you take it offroad.

The only way to fix the sag is to change the leaf pack. You could add a leaf, but it would only give you a few months before they started to sag again. I think technically you could have spring shop rebend the leafs, but that would cost much.

Can't shackles solve this problem also? Huey, the front springs will settle and it will even out, CoreyXJ's jeep went through the same thing. It's just a part of it.

I didn't think so, but I could be wrong. By adding a shackle it would create lift, but in the same instance the saggy leafs would still be saggy.

right click on the pic and choose properties, then copy the url link from properties. Go to your post and type in [ img ] paste the properties and then type in [ /img ] Make sure there are no spaces, I added them so you could see it.

Based on that picture it looks like you've already got a set of drop shackles on it? Aside from replacing the leaf packs, you could add 2 or 3 leafs from the stock pack to the RC pack. Basically, you would seperate the stock pack, cut the eyes off the main leaf and use that as well as the second and/or third leaf as AAL's for the RC pack. That would get you another inch or two to help level it out.

Here's a full writeup http://www.rocklizardfabrications.com/home_brew_budget_boost.htm

You might want to look into some lower control arms (possibly uppers as well) That front axle looks like it's pulled way back...again, I'm basing this on that picture.
