Lift blocks/Bodylift.?

I have a 3 inch body lift and a 4 inch suspension lift. Im debating on removing the body lift, installing a 1 inch body lift and installing 2 inch lift blocks. Ive never used blocks. Should i do this or keep the 3 inch body lift??

Also, is it okay to run lift blocks without a swaybar and tracbars?

Swap the body lift for the one inch version but before you think about "lift blocks" go out and look at your suspension and ask yourself whether its gonna do good or harm.

I'll wait.

Lift blocks are the best thing ever for sprung under axles!

I kinda figured id get those types of responses haha. After reading more about blocks, apparently they can cause the axels to shift. I think im going to get a 1 inch body lift, and the RC 1.25-1.75 booms. Trying to avoid trimming if possible. Also still waiting on my bilstein shocks to arrive any day now.

Adding blocks to a SUA suspension like yours will LOWER the Jeep, not raise it.

If they have a set, they can hang and are worthy of owning a Jeep.

Whoa there buddy!! I meant for my post to be helpful and teach a bit of self reliance as well. I believe that people should build their jeeps according to the use its gonna have and not solely on the advice of others. There is some reasoning behind the comments we make and most of chuckle not because we are better than the OP but because we are a better version of ourselves when we asked such questions at one point. It is all part of the learning process. I would rather someone learn from doing than to just follow instructions and have no idea what they're doing or why it is being done.

OP, if I have offended you in any way, please accept my apology. As per our PM's, I'm happy to help.
