    6" rear lift blocks for my 72? Right now I've got stacked blocks and ain't too keen about that idea.

    No blocks? How about a set of 6" rear leafs?

    No rear leafs? OK, then what material can I use to make some blocks? I was thinking 3" (2.5"?) wide by 6" high by 6" long 3/8" bar stock......

    Any recommendations?

    Horse traders welcome.

    Why don't you do a shackle flip and give yourself four inches, then use 2" blocks or longer springs.???
    just a suggestion

    Does your blazer need a true six inch block? They make a 5.5
    inch block for under $50.00. I have them under mine with the top on the truck sit's level.

    I started a post similar to this in the '73-'91 forum the other day. You may want to keep an eye on it.

    I reckon I could do a shackle flip. l did it on my other 72 Blazer. I just don't feel like breaking out the cutting torch and cutting holes again. Lazy I guess.

    Who makes a 5.5 inch block for under $50.00?

    Could you please give manufacturer name and a #?

    Thanks. This is right about my speed. As for 6", That was only an eyeball estimation (plus the front end has 6" superlift springs in it!)
