rear 1 inch lift

Ive called around and cant seem to get a good answer or remedy.........

I want to raise the truck another inch...front can be accomplished via the Icon tei relocation bracket.....

the Back is the problem
I currently have the Rize 6inch tapered block.....I cant find a 7inch block anywhere........

add a leafs would yeild more than the desired 1inch

Ive always heard stacking blocks is REALLY bad, but Ive had numerous places telling me to add a 1inch block and weld them together.

Is this ok to do with the amount of power I have running a spartan?

any suggetions would be appreciated..........I would really like to lift the truck another inch all around

Go to your local Spring shop, have them re-arch your existing springs. Thats the only way they used to lift trucks, back in the day.
