    Thanks. They look like shims. Do you have the vibration I described when decelerating through 20 mph?

    Once and while I have noticed a vibration. Not all the time at first install.Did you also get axle shims for rear? Helps correct angle a driveline

    I was just pm'd by another member suggesting that maybe the blocks I have are directional. I don't believe the Supreme Suspension blocks are directional. Can anyone else confirm?

    They are not. They sell a shim with rear blocks in lift kits.

    Why would Supreme Suspensions not include that in the kit? Makes zero sense!

    In there lift kit sections they have choices in lifts with choices for shims and diff drop etc. I agree makes no sense. I did my research and purchased all items in kit just to be safe.

    I contacted Supreme Suspension asking if they sell the tapered rear block shims to keep costs to a minimum. If they dont then I need to decide on Heavy Metal 1" tapered blocks $65 or Supreme Suspension 1.5" tapered blocks $33 (no u bolts) Then sell my 1" flat blocks. Not happy about needing to drop my rear end again!

    Low range offroad 1inch block is also tapered if you want another option.

    Looks great. I was supposed to receive my order from Supreme Suspensions today as well, 2/1 but shipping got delayed. Won’t be until Monday I think. Is it pretty much leveled?

    Thank you. SCS Stealth 6 17X8.5 offset -10. BFG KO2 load C 285/70R17. I was rubbing on the front and rear wheel well liner half turn backing up. Trimmed the liner and shaved the cab mount half inch and haven't experienced any sort rubbing even with the wife and 2 kiddos on board. I lost about a mile per gallon switching from Hankook Dynapro 265/70R17 ATM.

    At first glance, the front appears to be a bit higher. Since I'm having vibrations around 20 mph due to 1" non-tapered blocks, I may install 1.5" tapered blocks. Once I hear back from Supreme Suspensions about ordering the shims alone, I will post.

    Incredible thread. I've been reading it all day going back and forth while watching football.

    I have an off road 4x4 and I am switching to front coilovers this week(could not stand the soft ride any longer) and I am debating between the add a leaf or 1" block in the rear. From reading this thread, there doesn't seem to be any ride quality decline or draw backs from the block. I have heard the add a leaf can make the ride a bit stiff with no weight in the back.

    Big question to those who have experience with both a block in the back and an add a leaf, which direction would you go?

    IMO depends on what you need your truck for. For me personally I went spacer lift route because I don’t wheel much. Camping and light trails etc. for me. If I was wheeling a lot and loading truck up I would of went to a top end king Suspension or another high end brand. Sorry to get off top pick. So to me depends what you need the truck for. Good luck
