    Default Found a 3" lift kit for $30 at Pep Boys

    Does that sound realistic? Wasnt able to read the box fully but i think it comes with the blocks that go under the leaf springs and the mounts for them.

    It sounds to me like it's a coil spring spacer for the price! I know some of the partshouse's carry them as well as some drop kits!

    Yeah you most likely found a 2" block for the rear with new U-bolts...Very common and that's a common price but I dunno...The thing about throwing blocks in the rear is you gotta crank 2-3" to match the rear lift or your going to have that terrible rake...and cranking that much is no good...

    If it is just the rear block and ubolts, could i throw the blocks up front and level it?

    You can't put blocks in the front of your suspension.

    Don't worry, we all have our momments lol All of the GMT400's have a torsion bar front suspension set up. You CAN crank the keys to level it out, BUT depending on how much you crank, you will put more strain on your front end components causing your front end parts to wear faster. And you will also have a stiffer ride. Also you will need an allignment after cranking.

    I will also note just so you learn it now; even if your front suspension did that leafs putting blocks on the front axle is a big NO NO.
