Rear blocks

At some point I plan on fixing my ride to look right. Since the leveling kit the previous owner installed is welded in, I figure 4" blocks in the rear would put me back right. All I need is the blocks and new U-bolts. Any idea on where to procure them? All I've found are complete lift kits, which I don't want or need.

ubolts are usually available at your local spring shop ,, they carry threaded barstock in different lengths and bend it to fit many styles .. saves on inventory,

Blocks shouldn't be a problem .. ebay ? Amazon ? my garage LOL

I have no idea why I didn't think of a local shop. Thank you.

Is there a difference in blocks between Dodge and Ford? I know the front pumpkin is backwards on Ford, but I don't know if the spring mounts are any different. I grew up a Chevy man, then I learned better...

I don't think they vary ? I have a set of 4 inch blocks sitting there from my ford right next to my chevy lol

my ford has 3 inch wide springs so that may be a difference .. but the blocks are likley 2.5 anyway ,, I would have to measure ,,, also you may want to check your angles and see if you want a taper or not ,, unless your not actually going up in height ,, I didn't quite catch what your after

It'll be a 2" lift in the back to counter the leveling kit. It seems every leveling kit I've seen makes the *** sag. Thanks for the info, that will make the search easier. Didn't think about angles, but 2" shouldn't be drastic on the shaft. If anything, 2* should suffice.
