so i recently got a set of 2.5" lift coils for the front of my 86 b2 4x4 and am going to get blocks for the rear just wanted to know if the stock shocks will work with this set up and how much this will jack the front into a v and if soo will the caster camber blocks will fix this problem ?
thanks

Usually anything over 2in will need pivot brackets. if they are worn springs then you "might" get away with it.

I gained 2.5" of lift out of leveling coils in my x-cab. I needed longer shocks for the front. 2" wont matter much in the rear but you SHOULD get them.

You will need a 3 degree camber bushing to correct camber problems. Take it to an alignment shop to get it done correctly.
