I have a few buddies who have done it and cut coils. Taking out the blocks will squat the back end lower then the front as long as you have your stock 5 pack leaf springs. The only thing is that when you take the blocks out you have to get custom u bolts made. Basically measure your u bolt from the top to the center of the u and subtract what the block is. Also when you go to tow something now the back end will squat a lot with out blocks. If I knew how to post a pic I could show you.

I was thinking I could place the block on top of the leaf spring and use the same bolts.

I wouldn't suggest doing that because the plate that sits on top of the leaf springs wouldn't make good contact and possible break something or change spring rate?? Also do you have a 250 or 350??

Thanks for the responses, I have a 250. I cant exactly cut the coils, as i dont have any lol.I will try looking for a smaller block then, I didnt know it would sit lower than the front does. Towing doesnt really effect me, the most i tow is a small Uhaul.
