Teraflex Vs Daystar

I have Teraflex 1.5 inch shackles on the rear and stock front height. Has anyone actually measured the lift blocks from these 2 companies? Reason I ask is Teraflex says they are 2 inch and Daystar says 1.75... A salesman (yes I see the problem here) claims both give the same lift. Anyways 1/4 inch doesn't seem like much of a difference but, I would like to know before I buy them.

cheers

Are you needing to change them out?

I see. That is lame take out the front spacer and leave the longer rear shackles. They are the same, I had this same question some time ago. As it turns out, the slight extra lift comes form using the the stock spring cup. You do not have to use it on the either lift. In the Teraflex instructions, they tell you if you use it, the lift will be 1 3/4in and 2in if you do use the cup. Order Daystar's lift, i would imagine that it would be quite cheaper.
