Re: advice on lowering blocks...
Lowering blocks on leaf springs are no problem, the spring still works through its progression (the more load the stiffer it gets, basic springs 101), but on coil springs you need to get a different spring for the change in height, otherwise the spring will not work smoothly through the load change, and you shockies will be the first casualty (the will be working harder at the wrong time), then the bushes in your lower control arm (as the change in leverage, plus the shockies failing prematurely will mean more movement in the car and the lower control arm bushes. Talk to a spring works or susepension shop about the height you want to set the car to before spending many dollars.
