    "Blocks are brand new, and are polished aluminum"

    They look like concrete.. and not polished!

    So where do you get U-bolts for these things? You must also need a centering pin, since these blocks obviously don't have one sticking out. A block that tall really needs a taper at each end to keep the rear wheels centered in the wheelwell. The top taper would match the angle of your springs at the mounting pin, to keep the block running straight up and down. The bottom taper would set the pinion angle.

    The only thing that is worse than these is two pairs of 4" blocks, stacked, which I have seen /forums/images/icons/crazy.gif

    What are they using for aluminum polish, gravel? /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    Let's see....

    ...get some 12" Superlift front springs, 8" rear Superlift springs, these 8" blocks for the rear, and lower the spring mounts on the front 4 more inches and have a total of 16" of suspension lift. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    Then get a 3" body lift and 19" total lift to install some 46" Firestone Field & Turf tires. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif /forums/images/icons/cool.gif /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif

    Could be worse, there's a guy who used to run around here with an old Land Cruiser who had hockey pucks for his lift. Talk about scary!
