CHEAP - Rear leaf spring 1" leveling blocks (SOLD)

A pair of brand new blocks that came with a kit that I didn't use, solid aluminum made in the USA. Pretty nifty design, threaded for the center bolt.

Can be installed just like regular blocks (recessed for the stock Tacoma center bolt) or can be bolted to the leaf pack, with a longer center bolt.

Shipped to your door anywhere in the lower 48 states via Priority Mail with an online tracking number for just $35 bones.

USPS Money order or Paypal is fine... no worries on the stOoOopid Paypal fee, I'll cover that for ya.

Note: 1 inch blocks will work with the stock Tacoma U-bolts if you remove the washer.

I've got a set of used stock Tacoma U-bolts that I'll throw in the box for free if ya want 'em. Just say the word.

Word.

Thanks!

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Note: Removing the washers in order to get more room on the threads for the nut to get a purchase is a bad idea. The washers are there to distribute the pressure evenly to the mounting surface, and to provide a smooth surface for the nut to bear on making it less likely to loosen up.

Good point. I should have mentioned that using a conventional nut on a U-bolt without a washer is not recommended.

Since my U-bolt fasteners came with flange nuts perfectly flat at their contact surface, nixing the washer so the threads protruded once adequately torqued, going washer-less is a non issue. The bottom retaining plates are without refinement need and will provide a proper seat for a flange nut without the washer as well.

So, as Chris noted, if your nut looks like this, don't remove the washer -




But if your nut looks like this, you'll be fine -



Actually, if your nuts look like either of the above, you're probably not fine and should seek a doctors advice. Thanks for the bump Chris.
