Haha You should start being concerned after 3 months.

While that maybe true, I don't have summer weather all year round like some of you guys do. If the blocks don't arrive soon, I may have to cancel the order. I don't need blocks in time for winter (snow) Are there any other decent steal blocks on the market? I had DJM 4" steel blocks on my last truck... I guess they were OK. DJM 3" steel lowering blocks are 1/2 as much as I paid for the Beefed blocks.

Bought a Ryobi 6" buffer today, it worked pretty well but the pads that came with it are sh*t so I picked up some turtle wax polishing pads and BAM, worked like a charm. Not bad for $30 bucks.

Got my USPS notification that blocks are at least thinking about being mailed. Now my concern is whether-or-not Brian remembered that I changed my order from 4" to 3" blocks... the notification email says 4" blocks.

While waiting, I found-out the DJM steel blocks consist of a generic lowering block and a pinion angle shim. I don't like the idea of using a shim... heck, I don't even like the idea of using blocks. However, the DJM blocks are almost 1/2 as much $$ as the Beefed Taco blocks, so something to think about if you're on a budget but don't want aluminum.
