I am considering the SJ 4" lift, and one of the options is to get the 6" rear spring and bring it down to a 2" block instead of a 6" block. I plan on using a set of ladder bars in the back, so spring wrap is of no concern.

I don't offroad much, and I pull sleds and drag race. I keep mostly to the street, but going offroad is fun for me on ocassion.

Are there any advantages to ditching blocks for taller springs besides less spring wrap in my application?

Thanks,
Chris

Nope none at all, keep the blocks, beware though ladder bars do not deal with twisting or flex so for the d-racing great sled pulls great, off-roading it might hinder you alittle

The bars I am getting are high quality ones with heim joints and don't bind. Thanks for the help.

If your truck rides like my `93 (ROUGH) the Skyjackers front and rear are said to make a noticible improvement in ride quality. I will be using my old 6" RC SJ springs on my `93 Cummins in the near future and I hope I get to eliminate the rear block or at least downsize it. :-\ In your case with it being a sled pull truck the loss of the lift block should make for less spring wrap but the softer spring rate on the SJ springs will counteract this.

Aren't taller springs stiffer overall because the ends are more verticle? I am not talking about the front springs, but going from a standard to a 6" spring in the back would be a huge difference in curvature.

He is using a ladder bar flake. I gotta ask how are you running this ladder bar? i just realized the lift, the bar has to be level to the vehicle, not the upper angle but the lower angle so you may want to think about the lift involved if you want the bar to work correctly
