    Yeah, I'm ok with the width. I still have the down style u-bolts so they should miss the block.

    If you can find a set I'd love some, just need to be sure they do not have any taper.

    Thanks!

    thay still wont clear the down style . if any would it would be the up style with a wider top plate. think about it. the downs run over the sides of the spring and block. with the wider block it will push them apart.

    you could got 3" bend square ubolts. but thay wont seat correctly at the top of the pack. then over time thay might loosen up.

    if you need the bump stop blocks. i have a set of gm 3" with the stopper ear.

    ford 2x4 trucks ran 2.5 springs. but most of the heavyer stuff that would have had a block would be 3" springs also.

    Well poo, I thought they'd clear. :doah:

    I know a buddy used some on his dually and they worked great, maybe they were off of an older, -92 Dodge. :thinking: Any chance you can get some of those?


    I have a set of 3" eared blocks but they're not quite tall enough to make the truck level. To make them work I'd have to stack some extra springs and I don't have another matching set to use.

    I've got a set of 4" flat blocks from my 95 F350, but as discussed,they are for a 3"wide spring. I also have the u-bolts from said truck,with a sterling rear (3 3/8" axle tube--like a 14FF). If you think they might work for you, let me know.

    That's for the offer but I've got to stay with my current u-bolts to retain my sway bar.

    This may be more difficult than I thought... :thinking:
