Could i put them in the front also? would i have to change out any other parts?
Yes they are fine in front because they are part of the spring pack. I run them front and rear with no trouble.
Make sure your u-bolts will handle the extra inch in the spring pack. I have them on the front of my 71.
now i have rear blocks will the zero rates still fit?
No,I wouldn't stack blocks. You would be asking for serious trouble IMO
alright i was just wondering thanks
I always though is was ok to use zero rates with a lift block. The zero rate is bolted/attached directly to the spring pack.
the center pins and possibly the u-bolts... other than that, no.
so its ok to use them with blocks huh?
it is ok to use with a block, they is absolutly no difference between using one with or without a block, it is bolted into the spring pack so it is 100% safe. it is not really stacking blocks.
cool thanks i jsut dont wanna die
as to the stacked block stuff. i wouldnt run one at all. more chance to pop a block out. the center pin is only for holding the leafs together and to center the pack on the pad. and just a nother idea to try is call or go to the state inspection shop and make sure it is legel in your state to do this. most states dont like this at all.
i dont know anyone who has ever lost a block. you cant really loose a zero rate or a block if you torque the ubolts correctly.
not saying it will happen just not a good idea. and buy the way i worked at a spring shop for about 1 year so that is where i get my info. but do as you like its your ride. just check the ruels and regulations of your state. that is all.
Running a zero rate with a block is no different that running a flipped overload spring with a block.
