I know this is super old but I guess because its my thread I can bump it lol.
But back to the question I have the belltch shackles ready to install acourse ive had them for like a year now and still havent put them on lol. But im thinking about removing the stock block and installing the explorer leafs for 2 inch lift vs keeping the stock block and adding the shackles and ill just end up selling the shackles.
Now more technical should I try to find the 2 door explorer leafs or 4 doors explorer leafs and whats the difference? Is the 4 door leafs always the 4 pack leaf style thats everyone wants for this mod?
Also I read up that there is 4 codes for the rear leafs, F, H, J, and L. Whats the difference between them besides stiffer spring rates and what are the actual spring rates as well?
Basically im just looking for the best riding way to lift the rear 2 inches, either the stock setup plus belltech shackles, or remove stock block and explorer leafs? I assume itll be the explorer leaf route, and if so what would be the best combo of those to try and get beens there is alot of different codes for them? Hope that makes sense, thanks.
