Re: 12 inch blocks??

Blocks up front isn't safe, and stacking blocks in the rear is also not safe. I would go no higher than 4" blocks. 12" blocks would in my humble opinion be really unsafe (imagine what would happen if you take a sharp corner and one of them kicks out to the side yikes!!)... Rear blocks also can cause axle wrap...

I'd personally go with 6-8" lift springs and do some surgery on the body panels to make up the rest (or a body lift), it'll flex better, ride better (although you didn't care about that), and your center of gravity will be lower and that'll make it handle more safely in corners...

Just my few pennies worth...
