exactly

you should've seen some of the responses I got "back in the day" when I had an XJ and was searching high and low for a 1-2" body lift

And you know now that blocks for a sprung under suspension will LOWER the vehicle, right? This is how S10's get low, cheaply.

Dont take it personal. Some times its difficult to determin how things are typed and taken out of context. I know who you are and the vast amount of knowledge that you have

Yeah i know. Thats half the reason im a member on here is to learn as much as possible.

I'm not the sharpest when it comes to suspension, but thats gonna change over time because im learning more and more everytime im on here. Thanks for all the advice everyone.

I had a 3" lift on mine when I got it. When I put on my 2.5" suspension lift, I took the body lift and cut the pucks in half creating a 1.5" body lift to go along with the 2.5" suspension lift. I'm running stock shackles. I like the 1.5" body lift because it allows me to clean between the drive train and the bottom of the tub easier, as well as gives me a little extra room to work. The body lift also gives my 31's more room to flex. Not wanting to go any taller than 4" overall, I opted to not go with boomerang shackles. Personally, I like the stance and wheel well clearance I have. My rig looks kind of stock, but definitely modified at the same time. When she gets off road, the extra room allows me to make my 31's do things guys on 33's wish they could do.
