Nah, no blocks in the front. Just in the back. And yes mini packs being the little short minis with the rod or bolt through them.

Those are expensive garbage and unsafe in the front, plus they do nothing for spring clearance.

As for front blocks being so bad. Why is about every heavy duty truck with front leaf springs have a lift blocks?? If you dont think so look at the next heavy truck you see. AND those trucks dont have track bars to center the axle. Just my .02 on this topic.

They probably don't want novices using blocks (not saying you are.) Those blocks you see probably have well fitted holes and pins in them etc.
