3" blocks and torsion crank

hey guys i havent been on in a while but i have been pondering an idea. i tried searching and found nothing. next week i am gettin a set of 265/75's coopers, and i want to have just a tad more lift. i know there are stock 2" blocks in the rear.. and i have access to some 3" blocks and u bolts. i dont have my t-bars cranked very much, and according to research i should have enough left to level out the front with the rear with a 3" block. it seems like it would be an easy, cheap, and effective way to get just a tad more lift. has anybody done this?

(i already tried chevy shackles and the way my exhaust is routed there is no way to keep my tips and run chevy shackles)

If your t-bars are at factory right now,after you put in the 3in blocks you will need 1.5-2.5in of lift for the front. I dont see a problem with it.
