    I went to 4wheel parts today and got a 3 inch raised steering block went to install it and having problems.
    The kit comes with Block, 4 studs and a steering block cylinder ( but no block cylinder in the box) so I called them and they have to call the manufacter on monday to get more info.

    So I was wondering if you have ever installed one is there suppost to be a block cylinder?

    I would have to say yes because when you remove the top plate there is the spring assembly then your supost to install the spring assembly then install this cylinder I guss to hold the spring assembly down. then install the top plate and reinstall the drag link.

    Let me know if I'm right or did I miss the boat some where.

    i kinda got confused, so i'll tell u what came when i got mine.

    a 3" blk that is rectangular shape & has a round hole in center. a round peg to fit in the hole in the block, & the studs. the "peg" is to hold the kingpin spring down on the kingpin bushing.

    yes you need the cylinder and it holds down the spring. It makes up the extra space between the steering arm cup(where the spring normally is) and the spring. Its crucial. Your mistake I must say was going to 4 Wheel Parts for anything.

    Bo,


    How much was that kit? I've been wanting to get one as well. Especially since I plan to have my rig together this summer:D
