If the shocks are pulling through they're either A) not long enough for your lift or B) too long for your lift. My **** fell off cause the welds were cracked and I didn't know it... mount came off, shock extended, drug on the ground and bent my shock piston.

Once I get the new shock I'm gonna weld the hell out of the mounts. Both sides... they only have like 2" stitch welds along the sides from the factory... not really strong enough for the punishment I dish out hahaha

I dunno I got the N2.0 shocks and I've beat the everliving snot out of them. I broke a mount off before the shock died... I didn't go with spring blocks though. I got the xflex kit that has all new springs... has performed great for me. Only thing I would have done different would be to get longams. Having some clearance issues when I get her crazy flexed out. The only thing about the kit that dissapointed me was that it does not include a drop pitman arm or heavier tie rod tube... and the trac bar wore the f out really fast... other than that its been great. No creaking or anything its quiet as hell off road

Your probably blowing though shocks because the uppers are not matched to the lowers so your axle is twisting when you flex it. And as far as the creaking and popping that's the nature of the beast with unibody trucks but having the universal joints in the control arms minimizes that a lot. Solid bushing arms have to torque a lot more on the body to achieve the same flex. My buddy has the x flex longarms and its like riding a cadillac through the woods. Quiet and smooth.
