Rear Block help

Ok this past weekend I finnally got to install the 4" blocks that I have had for over 3 years . Now for the problem I oredered the blocks, u-bolts, and drive shaft hanger from powerstrokeshop.com well they sent me the wrong drive shaft hanger and now I have a vibration when I leave the line hard (all the time lol). Does anyone know the right part # for the hanger that goes with the 4" rear blocks??

Thanks,

Brian

Re: Rear Block help

wrong angle on the driveline will (could) cause the u joint to bind. And if you are racing and such, between the shaft issue and those blocks you are flirting with an accident, imo

All I did was install the factory taller blocks they are not even 4 inches tall so its all good.

tbolt that is correct I need to have the proper drive shaft hanger so the angle is right. I did not have the vibration before I did the new blocks

Re: Rear Block help

You may need spacers for your carrier bearing. Just shim it with some flat 1/8" or 1/4" stock. Keep adding shims till the vibration goes away.

Carrier shims will fix it guaranteed.

Re: Rear Block help

to me, if you installed the factory 3 5/8 blocks, you should not need shims in under your hanger brg. my truck is the same truck, mind you an 03. but same wheelbase and cc as well. it came stock with the 3 5/8 block and it also had no shims. or am i not reading your question right??

Re: Rear Block help

Like the above post said, not sure why you would need it. My truck is F350 and came with the bigger blocks and had no carrier spacer. Here is a decent price on a kit at TruckToyz. Call them if you want, they will make sure get what you need:
