Anybody? You can get em from Summit. A little more pricey at $55. They are 1.5" tall.
looks cool ! i want some indefinat adjustment?
that looks lie it would break easy
What are they made out of?
looks like alum.
Do they bolt to the springs like the ORD Zero Rates, or are they just a block ??
there is no hole, they are just 1.5 inch blocks...
i just read up on them, they arnt designed for a lift (if that matters). they are made to lower race cars that have the opposite u bolt kits.
seems like you would add risk breakage for an extra 1/2"
You can get 1.5" zero rates anyway. I wouldn't use those contraptions.
Those are for cars with spring under to lower them...
I wouldn't run an aluminum block. Seen too many break. Seen quite a few wear so the axle rocked back and forth on them.
You can go to most machineshops and they'll make you a pair for about $25.
Or, you can go even cheaper and take a pair of old overload springs... I know everyone has a bunch laying around, cut them down to 6" long, and bolt em in. They are only around 3/4" tall, but they work as well.
a lot are 1/2 thick, but you can stack them and put them in the bottom of your spring pack.
I was thinking more along the lines of the fact you can adjust them to 1/4"-1.5" in either direction moving the axle. They are built for race cars and I assume most have higher torque and hps then most of use will ever reach. Lowering block...well sure....thats the idea on a spring under, but doesnt that mean that they do the opposite on a spring over?
Hey Im not sure how well they'd work, but the simple fact that they are adjustable and a holf inch taller is the reason I brought them to your attention.
but it's not the height that's adjustable, is it? It looks like you can adjust your axle forward and backwards with them. That seems like an unique capability.
