best way to get 1 inch lift in the rear

Im going to crank my t bars about 1.5 inches. Id liek to lift the rear a inch to help level the truck out. Im not sure what way to go. should i get some 1 inch blocks or a AAL? I think the blocks would be easier but AAL safer? I cant do shackle because it would get in the way of my exhaust.

Thanks
Tony.

I would do a AAL. Eithor way you will probably need new u-bolts.

I did the same budget lift to my truck.. I'm not sure what you currently have in the rear but I removed my stock 2" factory blocks for these 3" blocks I bought at Advance for like 30 bucks.. It made a noticeable difference. I run 32 11.50's and everyone compliments it's stance..

Just a heads up.....my truck was level with stock rear and max cranked bars....




You won't need new U-bolts if you install an AAL....My stockers worked just fine with my AAL. BUT...they are kinda short....I barely got my James Duff traction bars to bolt onto the stock u-bolts w/ the AAL and the Duff brackets.

you could do belltech 6400 shackles for a 1.5" rear lift... but you will likely be level without them.

Im a 1/4" lower in the rear with the tbar crank.. so practically level
