blocks

i have always been told you never put lift blocks in the front end of a truck. but lately ive had more than one person tell me that they run them on their trucks. am i wrong or are they about to run into some problems?

I personally feel blocks in the front is a bad thing. I made new leaf spring hanger brackets for mine to raise the front and they have worked great.

I also agree with raul, and for the money go with new leaf springs for the rear it will be worth it in the long run!!!

When i bought my 01 i didn't pay attention to the lift (I was so excited to get a stroke). When i got it home i noticed it had 3in lift blocks front and rear....not steel ones but those cheap a$$ aluminum one like you lower small trucks with. They were all smashed and bent up. It is a wonder i got it home. I didn't drive it again till i put a 4in superlift on. i wish i had pictures of the blocks that came off that thing.

I say no to lift blocks in the front!!!!!!!!!!!!!
