    I installed progressive add a leaf icon on my truck that gave 1.5" rear lift. I feel like I am a nose high even though I truck is just leveled.

    I like the little rake on my truck before thinking to add 0.5" or 1" tapered rear block.

    Anybody knows where can I buy it?

    Lots of sail boat fuel
    What's in the front?

    You're rapidly running out of travel in the rear shock and could do damage

    Not really. Unless he drops a tire or stuffs one, his shocks will be ok.

    With the overload in, it will give you 2" of lift. Guessing you pulled overload? No tapered blocks under 1-1/2" that I know of.

    I took the overload.
    The instructions recommended to remove the overload.

    On the other hand, the clamps on both end of the overload leaf needs to be removed for it to be installed back because the progressive icon aal has it on both ends.

    Overload will add the half inch you’re desiring.

    Also, if you haul of tow it’s a benefit to reinstalling. 10% loss of payload without the overload installed.

    This looks great but I like it tapered.
    I had a non-tapered 1.5" block and I had a minimal vibrations at 15-20mph.

    I placed 1" spacer on my 6112 front shocks to give 3" lift.

    I might just do that since I can't find any tapered block.


    Thank you

    Toytec has a 1/2” block that they call a “shim”... it will give you 1/2” lift out back
