    I built my own out of some spare (useless) overload springs from a leaf pack. They arent quite 1", but 3/4" is close enough for me. I just cut em off at 6", and bolted them in. Worked like a charm.

    I think I will hold off, I really dont like how they a look all that much. I will just trim a little more instead of adding those.

    Thanks

    Not sure exactly what you meant by that, but rarely do I see peeps have asthetic (sp?) issues with a leaf spring. lol. To each their own, some guys dig making every single part of their rig purdy, I dunno...maybe its the German in me...but when it comes to my rig, I only find beauty if it has functionality.

    No, I didnt mean looking pretty looks. I just dont like getting more lift that way. Thats all I meant.

    Now, if they were a pretty pink.. then they would like REAL nice.

    Heh heh! =) I didnt think thats what ya ment, just messin with ya. ;) At any rate, I am going to go with zero rates on all 4 corners eventually. I like the idea of an extra " of suspension lift that doesnt really affect my suspensions flexibility...and at the same time isnt a nasty block, but part of the spring pack. Good times. =) To each their own I guess,

    Let's clear this up: ORD zero rates are lift blocks. They happen to have the center bolt going through them, but many of us have done that with regular lift blocks, anyway. So it is probably against the law to run them in the front.

    There. I'm off my soap box now.
