Default Antifreeze woes

Well, my dads gf came over today and said she was leaking antifreeze...and omg was she ever...out of the lower intake manifold. Gasket was toast. So after 8 hrs+ of tearing the 4.0L apart and putting it back together, I start it up, and the fucker's STILL leaking. I think the blocks cracked. The heads/ freeze plugs looked good as did the head gaskets so I didnt tough them....This thing is frustrating me to now end, and just wanted to rant about it.

You'll be able to do it in a third the time when you try again.

No knocking, overheating or antifreeze in the oil. Just antifreeze literally POURING out the block.
