Usually if going bigger then 2 inch drop you wanna get tapered blocks. Its when the blocks are cut at a 2 degree or more angle so that the axle doesn't wear out. Depending on how much angle your axle needs, these might help..

As far as torsions for the front check out this post, gives all the details..

http://infamousnissan.com/forum/show...ht=torsion+bar

On mine I just ordered 4in drop blocks for the rear with a 2 degree taper, im gonna get rid of the rear bump stop, and I got energy suspension bump stop's at autozone for 12bucks. For the front I am going to torsion it until it's even with the rear drop, and I got pinto shocks for the front like mentioned in the thread above, and I am going to drill out the bump stop's in front to get a smoother ride, also if your doing torsion lowering you wanna get 4x4 fenders so it wont rub.... Just food for thought, Sorry to take over your thread.

they make tapered and untapered blocks, the larger the block the more need for the taper. running without the taper or incorrect taper would cause more wear on the u-joints than the axle. the carrier on the driveshaft can only be raised about an inch, others have slotted the holes to give some adjustment.. but i think you will be hitting axle before you have to worry about that. i ran 4"blocks, middle leaf removed, and 4" notch and never changed the axle setup or had a problem. if it aint broke dont fix it

hmm, I just got my Belltech 3" blocks, untapered. I am worried now that i will have issues. Should I set these aside and go for tapered ones? I have a 97hb reg cab with 18" titans.
