    Is there a leaf pack I can buy that will eliminate my blocks in the rear with the 7 inch bds lift and still keep the same height? Or can I call Deaver and get something custom made? I love the ride heighth right now and I want it to stay the same but get rid of the block and it’s also time for new leafs so might as well do both...thanks for the help

    ICON RTX it’s adjustable and should be able to replace the block! I have the same bds setup and just got the new leaf pack! Waiting for installer to get it installed

    You can call them and have them set it up however you want. I have a friend that has a topper, aftermarket bumpers and roof racks so he called thems up and had them adjust for that. Said his ride is smoother than stock now and highly recommend these guys. I’m going with their 6” leafs soon

    a combo that worked for me was OME dakar leaf pack and Coachbuilder +3 shackles. Gave me about 5" in the rear and was level with the front.

    The rear is a little high right now and I believe it’s becuase the leaf pack is new! Over time the leafs will settle down and the car will be more level! I don’t mind that it’s a little high becuase with some weight in the back doesn’t squat as bad!6897AC8F-4077-46CC-9546-0588597076CE.jpg 37BE7A30-824E-4031-9C89-44AE75D1827F.jpg 901A1B36-6A4B-4B00-B9DE-8BBCFED6EA34.jpg

    Pretty noticeable rake or no? It looks good man I might go that route. Maybe with plus 2 shackles if the back is too high

    Like I said it’s just this high right now becuase it’s new ! Time will tell once everything settles in how high it will be ! It’s not super noticeable but with having the rear a little higher it looks more aggressive but that’s just me

    Call Deaver and they can make what you want.. for 7” you need CB+3 too.
    I want new ICON RXT at first but called SDHQ they told me that if you set up to the higher level only good for off road but on road no good he told me customs Deaver ride better. lol
    I like my custom Deaver 3” with TC shackles about 3.5 off lift. CB+2-+3 about level to your 7”
    I haven’t try RXT yet but a lot of people like it and looking good too.
    Skyjacker has 4” lift spring too . Can’t go wrong with RXT or Deaver. Good luck

    It's progressive stack, normal driving I didn't notice much. Offroad it has a lot more flex and 13" of mainly down travel, unsure how much I had with factory leafs and blocks. I also need to have the shocks re-valved, they're valved for my old setup. I have a trailer that I hook up frequently that weighs over 4k lbs and the rear end doesn't squat much, I'm off the bumps while sitting but when towing I'm constantly hitting them. If you go this route, you'll need extended brake lines.
