    Alright so i'm no newb to lift kits seeing as all 3 trucks i've owned i've had one on it :jester:. BUT i have been looking into the fabtech or BDS lifts and personally i like a little cali lean. So i know most people are always trying/asking about stacking spacers. to hell with that i'm not messing up my cv axles. So would it hurt to just order a different set of blocks? instead of 5.5" blocks that the 6" come with maybe get a 4.5" or 4" block. Or would i run into axle problems? because i dont see it any different than raising the front
