got the 4' tuffcountry suspension lift every thing went pretty food until i hit the blocks and found out you got to stack them and thats why they got a funky taper also i got the wrong u bolts they sent me new ones too and my x-fer case didnt like the lift so tuff country sent me a x-fer case drod kit for free every thing was overnighted and they did a good job of making every thing right as for the ride and performance i love it ,it actually dives just as good if not a little better than before
but be sure to get the drop pitman arm or your steering radius goes straight to hell

my opinions only

Stacked blocks? Not in any lift lik I have heard of! Sounds like something isn't right there.

Actually when you purchase any lift that only has front springs, they have an extra block to put in with your factory block. The only time you get rear springs is when you buy the complete system lift, not just the regular one. That is the same way the Rough Country lifts are.

Just goes to show you how cheap and dangerous of a product a company is willing to sell if they can make a few more bucks on it by saving a bit of metal. You couldnt pay me enough to ride in a truck w/ stacked up blocks in the rear. Just the thought sends chills down my spine. I'm pissed that my 6 inch skyjacker lift system kept the stock block let alone have 2 blocks.

All lift companies sell a kit and a system. Kit being front springs only, rear either another block or an add a leaf and taller block.

The system is the full springs kit. All lift companies are that way.

BTW, it isn't the lift companies being cheap, it is the buyer being cheap. They offer the "cheap" lifts because the customers asked for them.

Its not all about being cheap it's about getting what you can when you can and up grading later when you can afford it. some of us dont have alot of money to buy all the expensive things all at once and talk down to those that cant do it like that.{flipoff}

There is nothing wrong with being cheap, sorry you took it that way. I wasn't even talking about you in the first place, so that wasn't talking down on you. I was just making a point that it wasn't the lift companies tyring to cut corners.

Cheap is good, I am cheap. My first lift had stacked blocks. I didn't know any better at the time and that was all I could afford. No problem with that. No need to get mad.

what if you bought the kit and insted of putting the block on just do a shakle flip? Still inexpensive...would that be better than stacking blocks???

Stacked blocks can shift since they are not one piece. A guy up this way lost a REAL nice ford PU because one of his stacks popped out on a corner. Rolled the truck, ripped the axle that lost the blocks off the truck and basiclly destroyed the whole thing, Think he saved the engine tho!

Better than just stacked? Yes.

As good as buying a single block for less than $50 a pair? No.

Don't stack blocks man...please?
