50 chevy 1/2 ton. How low can you go??

Hello everyone. I want to know how big of a lowering block I can put in the back before it starts to mess with this torque tube driveline. I want to put in a 5" and take out some leafs. Is that possible??

IMHO it will start messing with it as soon as you lower it. JMO
Just how low do you want to go anyway. 5 in and removing springs thats going to do alot it's self. i would stick the block's in and have a look before i removed any springs. JMO
