Default Which is easier

I have a DIY question.. I've been looking at rasing up the back aprox. 2" and i've been on summit racing website and the rear blocks are about 65 bucks and theres add-a-leafs for about $55-59. Which would be more worth the money and easier to put in by my self?? is this something me and a buddy can do w/ a jack and some standard tools? I understand that the AAL will make the ride in back a lil stiffer

Blocks would be easiest to install of the 3

AAL and shackle could be hard depending on condition of the truck's under carriage

What year truck you have

Add the leaf and then extend the shackles as well - added blade would give 1"and the 2"longer shackle will give another 1"
very easy to install, you could do it at home no problem
