    Im looking to make some 1.5 lift blocks and i was wondering if anyone could tell me the size of the pin on top of the block (diameter and height) and the hole on the bottom of the block. i'd really appreciate it thank you!!

    hell I have a set of 3.5" blocks in the garage...but the garage is 56 miles away! Sorry....

    P.S. if blocks is what you want then don't let anyone tell you otherwise. It's your truck after all. I had those 3.5" for 3 years with no issues. Even took it off roading in Arkansas back when I use to take it off roading and they worked great even with holding 4 wheelers in the bed!

    hope it works out!

    I'd be more worried about axle wrap on road, than anything offroad.

    On the thin leaf taco springs it was there, but it wasn't terrible. Didn't have any issues. Might have just been me???? I don't know? But early Rangers came with them stock and there are even heavy trucks, like buses and dump trucks running blocks on the front leaf and in fact they have been used for years. Just give it a try and if they do not perform the way you like then move on to something else.

    why did you have to measure your centering pin when you put the shims in ? im guessing b/c they sat under the whole entire block
