Questions on installing rear blocks, '08 250
I've heard this is a relatively easy project and after extensive searching and want to make sure I'm clear on what's involved before I get started. First off I'm the new owner of an '08 250 from California which couldn't make me happier due to the fact how brutal the Utah winters are on vehicles, the undercarriage looks new compared to similar model years/miles from my area.
The process as I've been able to see it involves placing a jack/stand under the axle and removing the u bolts, then jacking the springs enough to remove and replace the block (is the factory block or new one for that matter attached in any way other than the pin?) and reinstalling the new u bolts. Will I need to disconnect the lower shock mount?
Is there more to the process of adding the shim to the carrier hanger other than removing the bolts and sliding it in, and will this step be the last one?
The truck came with a level kit and sits 98% level but with our camper's dry tongue weight of 800 lbs (bumper pull) this seems to be the right move even with our WD hitch.
Seems very straight forward, am I close on the process? Thanks in advance!
