Does anyone have or know someone that has a 4" or bigger block on the rear with the 2.5 deaver pack on a 2wd. I have SAW c/o's and the rear sags too much, my c/o are cranked just under 1 inch and the rear is almost an inch lower. If anyone has this, have you had any problems with this set up.

so are you saying that if you had the c/o cranked all the way up it would be about 2" lower in the back?? I'm curious because I'm planning on getting a similar setup..

Any advice on bilstein shocks in rear and donahoes in front on a 2006 CC 4X4 SE? My concern is towing. The stock shocks stink when a load is put on. Will the billsetins hold the weight better? I have a friend who uses Rancho air shocks, am considering those as well.

I really don't know how much lower the rear will be. But the front can go up another 1-2 inches, that's why I need to get the rear up a little. Greg at PRG said there will be a little rake towards the rear but I want to see if anyone is running a 4" block or bigger in the rear.

Shocks don't hold up the weight, that's the spring's job. But they will work better than the factory pieces of crap when towing.

Your post wasn't that clear, you already have the 2.5" Deaver mini-pak, but it's still lower then the front? And it sags?
When you say the SAW's are "cranked" 1 inch, are you talking about veh height or how much the actual shocks are pre-loaded?

The Deaver pak in the rear should be able to level out that truck, and normally they don't "sag"...The Titans are hi in the rear stock...

O.K, I bought the SAW's and cranked them to 1-1 1/4 preload, at the same time I bought the 2.5 deaver springs. Truck still seemed low in the rear so Greg at PRG got me a 3" block, now still the rear is 3/4" lower then front. I'm looking to see if anyone is running a 4" block on 2wd without problems.

Very strange. I have 4 in spindles and SAWs with 1 inch of preload and a Deaver 2.5 and mine sits level

That's what Greg said, I go outside every couple hours and remeasure, thinking I made a mistake, but NO.

I don't get it, with out lift spindles, a set of SAW's with about 1.5" of lift would barely level a Titan with a stock rear spring pak, let alone a 2.5" mini...By installing a rear 4" block, you're saying you need about 6-6.5" in the rear just to keep it level with the front...

Sorry for the confusion, I have a 6" Fabtech lift, SAW c/o's, 2.5 Deaver with a 3" block. C/O's are preloaded about an inch, wondering if anyone has had problems with a bigger block because I am thinking about going to a 4" block to get the truck closer to level and raise my C/O's a tad more.
