Just a word of caution. If you are going to re-drill the rear hangers, the 1 inch blocks will put your axle very(VERY) close to resting on the frame.
I have zero bump stops in my truck front or rear, with about 2.25" of clearance between the axle and frame, and I occasionally bottom the rear against the frame rail on spirited turns when there is a bump in the road. If you are doing a mini-notch the 1 inch blocks should be fine, if no notch I would think that they will be a bit too close to be comfortable, unless the roads where you live are exceptionally well maintained.....
I have a couple of pictures in my album if you want to see the height of the above combination. For what its worth my truck has the 17" Titans with 205/50/17 tires for an overall tire height ~1.5% larger than the stock tire height.
yeah i literally ordered the spindles, leaves and 1 inch blocks last night actually lol. sounds like iíll have to get a 2 degree shim for that as well since the block i got has a 2 degree on it. as for the hanger re drill i was gonna wait till i get my wheels and tires to see where the leaves and blocks sits. i donít mind the roads, theyíre fairly shitty where i live but i daily a slammed civic so if i can get around in that, i should be golden in the truck lol, and itís not really gonna be a daily either. should be ordering the wheels and tires soon, so iíll just go from there. do you happen to have any pics of the axle clearance with the re drill blocks and leafs? thanks for all the info as well!

Hi EF2.
Here are the pictures you asked for.




As you can see there is no room for a standard bumpstop and still allow axle travel in my setup.

But in your setup, I would guess that you will have about an extra inch since the redrill adds ~2 inches of drop. As a side bonus you may also not need that additional 2 degree shim, because you are not doing the redrill. I would suggest measuring the original pinion angle before any mods, then re-measure after the new setup and compare them to make sure you do or don't need anything else..

Let me know if you have any other questions.

thanks for the pics, that actually looks like more room than i thought there would be. are you running no bumpstops in the front either? maybe a re drill will be in my future lol. i’m chomping at the bit to get working on this damn thing.oh yeah what’re the specs on those wheels, and what size tires are you running?

Typical Dachsy, sleeping on the job and trying to get a tan. I've got 2 of them, quiet until I come around then they think everything needs barked at.

so i originally was gonna do a 16x8 with as close to 0 offset as possible, but now am kind of thinking about a 15x8, same offsets. anyone got any pics of either they’d be interested in posting? i’m wanting to get low, but i don’t want to do too much rear fender work to get the wheels to not rub. i dunno i’m super indecisive lol, i’m down to hear opinions though.
