    I spoke with him on the phone late last week and he is a few weeks behind on orders. I've got 3" blocks on order from him.

    Are his blocks powder coated or just painted?

    Im gonna bend the tab on the axle back to keep from hitting also the brake lines on the axle that connect up to the frame Im gonna see if i can bend them back as well to keep em from hitting each other I've seen people with just running the 4 inch blocks start to rub the brake lines so thats my plan i know he rubs the E-brake which i should be fine unless i raised the carrier bearing which i prolly won't do but because the single cabs are one piece drive shaft they will rub !

    but I'm gonna have a lot of work ahead gotta trim the fender wells in the bed to keep from rubbing, bend the brake lines and tabs and hopefully with the combo of stiffer gas charged shocks and 4x4 leafs i won't be bottoming out inside the notch!!

    hmmm hehe i wouldn't mind trying them 4" DJM blocks out my friends are cheap aluminum kine:p

    Yeah well anytime you modify a vehicle problems always happen last time I snapped the brake line on the axle being that I always whacked the exhaust so lesson learned and I dont want that on this truck

    But yeah brah can't wait to see how it looks with the blocks in :D

    CHANGE THEM!!!!! :eek::eek: I recently had to swap out my fronts due to the camber wear. Got a small hole in the front right tire while on fwy. good thing I didn't go out of control and stuff, but I wasn't driving all crazy like. Still, nothing worse than a popped tire ESPCIALLY when static dropped. In CA, as soon as the tow company hears lowered or what have you, they deem the vehicle as "modified" and WILL NOT pick you up/help you because of liability purposes and such. :(:mad:
