Yesterday I foolishly attempted to lift the rear of my 96' 1500 SLT with a 2" kit from VIP (I know I know). At any rate, I went with a 2" block on top of the factory 3". I ended up snapping two Ubolts with only a 6" socket wrench. I obviously took them back and will be getting quality bolts somewhere else. I am now thinking it makes more sense to get 5" blocks to eliminate stacking, and will also have an offset for the axle positioning. I currently have a skyjacker 3" suspension and performance accessories 3" body lift. My plan is to raise the truck two more inches with Daystars up front and blocks in the back. Can anyone who has been in this territory give me some pointers or some input as to if this is a wise decision. I am hesitant because I am pushing the limits ( brake lines and such)and don't want to go to far.
