I got some whiteline 2" lowering blocks the other day from bursons, $70. Not too bad priced i reckon.

What shocks are people running in the back of their 1200 utes? Im thinking just a set of Munroe GT's would be ample yea?

Look good, at what height should you start grinding an angle onto them?

pinion angle does not change from fitting lowering blocks of any size. no need to grind the on an angle.

Pinion angle can change when springs are redone to a different height.
Square blocks will lift the diff squarely and will not change pinion angle.

Well they would lower your centre of gravity a bit, pre-load your rear springs..sort of making them stiffer, would also reduce the amount of travel in your suspension.

I wouldn't think they were the idea way to improve handling, but wouldn't they decrease the body roll as the rear of the car, like a stiffer sway does in the front?
