    5.5\" blocks with U-bolts (if possible)

    I'm looking for some 3" wide, 5.5" tall tapered blocks with some u-bolts for a 10 bolt. I will even just take the blocks and get some u-bolts made...whatcha got??? /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif

    Have you looked into the poorman's shackle flip yet? It would be a safer and better ride than 5.5" blocks. You would basically use a forward rear spring hanger and mount it in place of your rear hanger with stock shackles. This will get you around 5" lift.

    Seen it, but I'd have to chop up my exhaust to do that. It would end up being a lot more expensive than just getting blocks. I was looking at the Echobit flip, but I have to shim and re-locate the axle to do it on top of the exhaust. Just keep checking the torque on the u-bolts and blocks work just fine. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    PM K5blazerus(sp?) or ask for him in the PNW forum. I believe he has gone that route. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
