Lowering Rear Stance

I replaced my worn out mono leafs with 5 leaf multi leafs. The car now sits too high in the rear. I really don't want to remove any links. Has anyone used lowering blocks to do this? If so, where did you get them and what are the pro's & con's of doing it this way?
Thanks

Re: Lowering Rear Stance

there's a ton of information using search here and at pro-touring.com

I have 1" blocks in mine now. The concern as I understand it, is for the block to increase the distance between the rearend and the spring. Under high torque this might increase the rate of failure in this area. (bad thing).

Most people think a 1" block is the most you want to go.
I used blocks from AFCO. They make them in 1" and 0.5". (probably others) Summit sells them individually. So don't screw up and order just one like I did *lol*

If you need more drop, you might consider lowering springs from Hotchkis, DSE or Global West and others. Or.... you can have your new springs de-arched by a local spring shop. They'll have to be out of the car to be de-arched.
