springs verses blocks

I am considering buying the cheap 4" rough country for my burban. I've heard bad things about rear blocks such as wheel hop and rough ride. Is this really a big concern for a non-daily driver. Is it really worthwhile and necessary to spend the extra $180 and get the rear lift springs?

Re: springs verses blocks

Blocks can cause axle hop because there is too much leverage. If you don't use too much throttle, it shouldn't be too bad.
If you're going to wheel a lot, you should get new springs. You'll also get better articulation and wheel travel with springs.
Plus, if your truck still has stock springs, they may be sagging and ready for a replacement.
