Default Raptor rear shocks on fx4

Do you need to run a larger block on your rear suspension so the raptor shocks won't bottom out or do they bolt directly up?

You must run Raptor 2.5" rear blocks to compensate for additional shock length

I keep researching all over the Internet and I keep hearing it both ways. I will probably end up doing a rear block. I'm thinking lifting the front with blisten 5100s. Will this set up be good together? Then eventually k02 275/60/20 tires. What do you guys think?

I have them on my truck..... LOVE Them!
I used a 2" rear block without any issues. It will not work well with the stock blocks however.

I will be changing to the F150Lifts.com 2.5" "Raptor Style" rear blocks in a few weeks when I put on the 3" Coil overs.....keeping the Fox Rear shocks.
