Spacer on rear axle/springs

Can you get a smaller spacer for the rear axle/leaf springs. I would like to get ther rear down 1/2" or so. I want to get the truck in the garage this winter.

if you have a 350 i would suggest maybe getting a 250 spacer. If you have a 250 you could try removing a leaf although i wouldn't suggest it.. Keep in mind what ever you do you will have to replace all of the u bolts and center bolts with new ones.

why i have re used mine plenty of times.

also you could take the stock blocks out and order new ones from 4 wheel parts or ebay and just get the size you want they even sell them at autozone just measure stock ones then get the right size you want.

When "U" bolts are first installed and torqued down they stretch. Reusing an old u bolt will not bring back the proper torque required for clamping.
