Just take one of these to it....  :~~:...

No really, what is it you have and how is it set up, why not dump blocks and go with a lower spring lift? more info would help.

ok here is a better discription no blocks no arched springs the rear are custom hybred chevys and the front are just rear 3 leaf and the shackles to make them fit so from what i see i have flat springs all the way around i did manage to get it levle by adding a leaf to the rear and a little diffrent shackle in front

so why don't you go and get yourself a ricer? those are pretty low. :stopit: :stopit: the only reason you should be lowering your rig is to have a lower center of gravity on the rocks. I say pick one hobby wheelin :chug: :chug: or barrel  :stopit: lowered truck racing :stopit:
