Ok guys, have a question for you. A couple of years ago I installed a 2.5" leveling kit, wich left the front about 3/4" lower in the front and after talking with some of you came to realize that maybe the front struts/springs were shot. So I finally purchased a RC 3" kit, new struts and springs and 1.5" blocks. Well after installing the front end stuff yesterday I realized that it now sits dead level. Everyone else Ive seen that did the RC kit had to add blocks. What gives? The struts and springs Inordered said for 04-14, so Im not to sure if the spring resistance is that if pre or post 08. Now dont het me wrong, I like the way its set up now, just wondering if anyone can explain why I seem to be the only one NOT having to add blocks. Any ideas? The pictures are of how it sits now, sorry the trucks so dirty, its been raining a lot.

Do you already have a block in the back and just didn't look?

No blocks in the back. And Im not intelligent enough to tell if the previous owner added a leaf, but I do know he towed a lot. Any ither ideas or can someone tell me how to tell if a leaf has been added to the rear?

Snap a photo of the rear springs if you can. I recently lowered my rear end and eliminated axle wrap with some pieces I made.
Personally, I like to have some rake, since dead level actually looks like the front is higher.

Havent got pictures yet, but in the 5 minutes it HASNT rained here in the last 4 days, my Lieutenant looked under and said there were blocks on the axle, but that they almost looked factory. Granted hes a die hard jeep guy, but hes pretty familiar with lifts. Without seeing pictures right off , can anyone say whether the 06 4x4s had factory blocks on them?

To my (limited) knowledge, there shouldn't be any "factory" blocks unless it came with a dealer installed lift off the lot.

I'm fairly sure none of them roll off of the assembly line with blocks installed though. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

Im failry sure youre right. Like I said, I wasinformed that the original owner towed a lot, so Im assuming maybe he put the blocks on to assist with the load? All I know is I now have the RC 3" and didnt add anything to he rear and Im loving the way she sits.

Ok, just got some pictures of the rear leafs. No blocks, just the spring perch. I did notice the bottom spring has a plus(+) sign on the bottom of it. Any ideas? As I said before, I replaced the front struts and springs, and installed a RC 3" kit, and Im trying to figure out why Im the only guy that hasnt had to add blocks to the back. It sits perfect.
