Using the Superlift 4" Blocks Instead of the 3"

Does anyone know if using Superlifts 4" blocks instead of the 3" blocks that come with the 4' suspension kit would pose a problem in the rear? Axle wrap issues?
I'm thinking about doing the ORW Coilover conversion when I do my Superlift in a couple weeks and saw that Summit has them for like $20 more. Any help would be great on this...specs on my truck are in my sig.

I wouldn't use 4" blocks, or even 3" for that matter. How much lift are you wanting in the rear? I would use shackles, AAL, and a small block if needed. Of course your best choice is lift leaf springs, but I am going to assume that's not an option.

I have the shackles already....and now looking in your sig you almost have the exact same setup I was planning on. What's your setup in the rear and how do you like it?

I would go with what KLC said as well. I did the blocks that came with the superlift kit, and I had soooo much axle wrap it was ridiculous...(sp?)
