Traction Lift

I just installed ORD's shackle flip on top of my 4" lift springs and put 8" springs up front (84 Chevy). The front of my truck sits an inch higher than the rear. It bugs me because the rear should sit an inch higher than the front if you ask me. I am researching traction lifts. Question is how much lift do they give and how much do they cost? I'd like to stay away from add-a-leaves and dont want blocks.

Re: Traction Lift

Traction lifts are not a good idea from what I've heard, What I whould do is go with ORD's 1" 0 rate add a leaf, The 0 rate part means it does not affect you ride or carrying capacity at all! Which means you won't get the sometimes harsh ride from a regulat add a leaf and you get your extra inch of lift[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img].
