Everything looks good except the 4" block. Buy the package deal, save some more money and get the OME full leaf and you'll be set. Or you can get a set of 3" shackles from Mr. Coachbuilder1.

4" rear blocks will not give you a smooth ride beside you ever heard of the term "axle wrap"? From what i read, axle wrap happens often to truck with lift blocks. Don't get me wrong i have 2" lift blocks in the rear of my truck but that is about to come off soon.

Im going to get the 3" shackles from Coach and go that route... not a fan of blocks either.... I think with the adjustable shocks up front I can still make it a level ride and look good with the shackles in the rear without blocks.

Are you going to install the lift yourself or the shop? If you let the shop do it, make sure they warranty their work and keep that paper. Myself and a few other TT have such a bad experience with Bilstein 5100

The snap ring that you use to adjust the height will slip out and set your coil springs free.

Big Dad... valid points for sure!! Im getting the kit for $950 with my little discount code so I save a few bucks on it... but I don't think im even going to put the blocks on and just get the 3" shackles from coach and do like you said and use my 1" block. I like the front a little higher... cali lean I guess!! lol!! Im thinking this kit/ set-up will get me by for now and if I decide to upgrade I can slowly do so but at least get around for now with a decent ride. Sell what I don't use and get a few bucks back... I really appreciate all your guys help and knowledge!!
