I personally think it would look stupid to have the rear sitting another 3" higher then what it currently is without lifting the front. Save yourself some headaches and just do it when you get the 3 inch spindle lift~

well my rear sits about an inch below the front already, and i know the edge has a 2in lift block in the back, so that would put me right around a edge wouldnt it

if it already sits an inch lower if you put the 2 block in have it 1" bigger in the rear thats not bad but the 3" would be like whoa

I think it would look horrible but I think a truck that sits level looks horrible, you should just save up for the spindle and do it right the first time

well i just lost my job so it could be a good while, and you see the front doesnt rub at all but when i flex the back to much it scrubs like a mother, therefore i cant go offroad until i get it done
