    I'm picking up a D60 and 14 bolt this weekend. I will eventually go crossover steering but will need the steering block for the meantime. How tall a block will I need for a truck with 4" of lift? Who sells the blocks?

    Thanks in advance!

    Doing the same thing as you are and what I have been told is a "2.5 inch block" is necessary and you can get them from Warn or Superwinch. Don't know how true it is because I haven't installed one on my truck yet. Unfortunately the prices I have been quoted are hovering around $100. BTW, Steve mentions using a steering block in his build-up on Project UAV but I could not locate a PN or dimensions on the block in this write-up. Hope this helps.

    Rene, I had an '84 K30 flatbed truck once that I lifted with a 4" Rancho kit. I got a 2.5" steering block for it and the draglink sat level.

    My '85 K30 has the drop pitman arm, so no block on this truck.

    i got mine from national tire and wheel...i think...
    it was like 65 and shipping. and its actually 4 inches high. corrects for 4-6 inches of lift. im just not sure about the national tire part, but everything else is right.

    I would go for the drop pitman arm
    higher resale value and same purchase cost
