Front lift
I need to raise the front up a couple inches. I have SOA now. Don't care for shackles to much. Should I get some springs or go with some blocks?

blocks on the front I believe are illegal everywhere.I don't normally worry about being legal myself but they are not real safe either..

Springs!!! Please don't put blocks in there. My 86 chevy has blocks in the front, it is purley off road, never sees pavement. It's SCARRY. ... I just imagine hitting a bump and the front axle landing under my doors.

My rear springs got bent. I got a good deal on some OME springs which were arched a good bit more than my others. That's why I need to raid the front. I just ordered the front springs. This pic kind of shows the difference from front to back.

What size lift springs are they? Any body lift or anything? I'm looking at going soa with 2.5" OME springs.

Stock shackles
3" body lift
OME 2.5" rear springs
Perches are 3" tall

Plastic fender flares that will be replaced with tube flares I'm working on.

I copied the body armor from a friends jeep. Mine is aluminum checker plate.
