Does anybody make a 1" rear block? I took the blocks out of the back of my truck, and it sits about 1/2" lower in the rear now. It's not really that noticable, but it bugs the crap out of me.

It's more noticable when your behind my truck. I was just thinking about putting excursion front leafs in mine to drop the front a bit.

Here are some pictures for referance. Don't pay attention to the lack of a front bumper.

I was thinking the same thing, but I don't want to have to shorten the front drive shaft. Plus I like the ride height in the front, just needs to be a hair taller in the rear.

You could always build your own... Buy a foot of 1"X3" thick steel and the right size of rod (1/2" IIRC) for the little knob on top. cut the slab to the right length, drill a hole in the center for the dowel. Place it in and weld it solid. Leave some space in the bottom for the other dowel.

:shrug: That's what i would do if i wanted it done now.

I've seen a few duallys without the rear block and they look pretty good, even with the stock wheels on there.

Get your front bumper back on there, and then see what you think, it may just be a trick of the eye, unless you actually measured it at a 1/2" lower in the rear?

Bumper is back on and it looks a little better than it does in the pictures, but i measured it to be 1/2" lower in the rear. I'll keep looking and thanks for all the replies.

Below are some updated pictures of my truck, stock front suspension and 1" blocks in the rear. Turned out pretty good, I am wanting to put a set of 20's or 18's and some Kumho tires on, but have to recoupe some money after doing some engine mods. Let me know what you think:D
