lift question

So I have a question about a lift that is on my 79 cherokee. I have a 4inch lift block on top of the rear axle. My question is,is there a beter way to get the lift then using blocks or is that pretty normal on fsj's I have always had cj and would never use a lift block on that.

You can buy new 4" springs, I would also not be happy about blocks.

I am not aware of a Rancho 4" lift spring. Out of all the 4" springs I have run and or had on my brother's two fsj's, I have to say hands down the best have been the Skyjacker full leaf packs. They today are still on my brother's truck and performing great. There have to be 200K miles on them by now.

FWIW, I have heard good things about the BDS ones although I have not seen them in person. Appear to be built a lot like the Skyjacker ones.

I have been trying to find a six inch spring lift for my cherokee but the bigest I can seem to find is 4inch. Does anybody know where I might be able to find a six inch lift kit?
