it took a bit for the shocks to break in, but I am now very happy with the results.

I ended up bumping the fronts up to the top cir-clip setting and swapping the rear factory blocks to 3" Ready Lift (1.5" net). I was getting flashed while towing due to being nose up, so I wanted to add in some rake again. I am very satisfied with the 3" block combo, I even did some pretty serious offroad articulation during my whitetail trip last week and it worked very well, sway bars obviously were the limitation for wheel drop and the rears were way off the ground several times but I experiences zero binding or rubbing with 285/65r20 KO2's

I did all the work myself on a quiet dead end city street, it was quite easy with basic mechanics tools and took a few hours per side going slow and methodical.. you defiantly would want a quality floor jack for safety.

I will post pictures later today.
