What's the overall height of your tires? I'm thinking of putting 12" wheels with low profile tires. I'm wondering if I'll still need the lift block?

I have a set of heavy duty springs on the way.

Surprised that the longer rear shackles pushed the springs down but didn't provide clearance between the rear wheels and the body. Not sure how that is possible unloaded unless the springs were wore out. Worked great for me.

I think the 12" tires would have worked without any lift. I wish that's what I had used.

I think the springs were shot. It just flattened them right out, but they were the original standard springs and I have added a rear seat, so it needed some hd springs.

I got the HD springs installed. Solved the scrubbing issue. It has about an inch and a half of clearance, and two grown men can sit on the back and it still won't scrub.

It looks the same with the new springs, it just don't settle down with weight on it.
