    Would a 3" wide block work on our trucks? Reason I ask is I can get some free superduty stock rear block, which is like 3.25" tall but 3" wide.

    yes and no.

    first = spring top plate or bottom plates wont line up as thay are 2.5 wide.

    second = its not good to put 3" wide on 2.5" wide perch. undo stress in spots and possible crushing could happen.

    third = just dont chance it . its not worth it.

    Keep your blocks the same width as your springs.
