so i have a 01 2wd f250 7.3l. i was wanting to lower the rear of the truck to level it out. i have been looking for a cheap way to achieve this or a DIY way. i found that everyone was saying to remove the blocks. the blocks on my truck where sitting in between the main spring pack and the overload spring. they were about 1-1.5 inches thick. i removed them and re took my measurements. it did not drop the truck at all. if any thing may be a 1/4".
did i do something wrong? i took the overload spring and put it on top of the other springs once the blocks were removed. is there a DIY way or cheap way to acheive this without raising the front of the truck and spending a bunch of money. i am open to suggestions guys. please i need some responses.
Sounds like you removed the spacer block between the main spring pack and the overload spring, instead of removing (or installing a smaller) block between the main spring pack and the axle.
