Another BB question.......yes I searched

Alright, ive finally decided that all I need is a 2" BB so I can fit some bigger tires. I dont want to risk having to spend all the money on an SYE and driveshaft because I dont have the money. I was looking at the Rocky Road BB and I saw it has rear blocks along with shackles. The blocks are only 1/2 inch, but I thought that blocks and shackles were the hardest on leaf springs. Is this something to avoid, or what, because I cant seem to find another BB that has a 2" shackle in the rear. Also, does anyone know of a website where i can look at the tera-flex BB, i havent been able to find any.

Also, Im going to be getting replacement rear springs from quadratec. should i drive on them for a little while to break them in or would it be ok to install the new springs and bb at the same time?

If you are buying replacement springs, just get taller spring packs and bypass the block or shackles... or go to the boneyard and buy another set of stock rear springs and do this:
