Different size blocks body lift?

Hello everyone, this is my first post. I am putting a 3 inch body lift on my truck. (1998 XLT 2wd). I was wondering if it would be possible to cut the blocks for the back of the truck and 2 inches, and work the blocks up to 3 inches in the front. I dont have the money for a leveling kit, and bought this body kit for 75 dollars from a friend.

Technically yes.

To do it properly you'd need a tapered cut. I've only seen 1 successful attempt.

Please for your truck's sake do not do it. You would be better off in the long run to wait until you have the money to get a real leveling kit

Especially with a coil setup, leveling kits are cheap
