    Do I need to do another alignment if I install 1" block. Installing bilsteins 5100 full lift on front. Rear 1" blocks won't be in for another 2-3 weeks should I wait and install at the same time
    Thanks

    I'd wait. Adding blocks to the rear will transfer weight forward, so it does have an effect on the front suspension, even if small.

    Raising the rear by itself will reduce your caster angle at the least. Camber and toe shouldn't change much but definitely recommend waiting for everything to come in before installing and aligning.
