    I want to put my zero rates in the rear to get rid of my saggy butt problem, only thing is, i have lift blocks back there right now. Since the zero rates are bolted to the spring packs, will it be ok? My eventual plan is to replace the blocks with springs, but in time.

    MT,

    That's the beauty of zero-rates! /forums/images/icons/cool.gif It is a SAFE way to add a "block" to the suspension because it phyically bolts TO the existing springpack, unlike a block lift that relies on the U-Bolts to cinch everything together....

    I just got my zero-rates from ORD this evening. Of course, like typical ORD products, they are high quality and well thought out.

    I will be installing them on "Mini-Me" to cure saggy butt...which sounds like the exact situation you are trying to cure also.

    It's kind of a "simple" upgrade, but what the heck, I'll take BEFORE and AFTER photos and post them! /forums/images/icons/cool.gif I'm still getting the new transmission bolted in, so give me a few days.....first things first, you know! /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    when using a zero rate with 57" springs, to offset the diffy, do you re-drill the zero-rate at an offset along with the spring perch?
