Affordable lift blocks

Hey all, with the price of steel and lift blocks I figured I would just make my own.

I drilled locating holes in top and put some strong lag bolts in the bottom for the head to locate on the spring pad

You can see I cut them long for extra stability so it should be fine I think?

Putting in the ubolts and plates soon, let me know if I should make any other improvements while I am at it.

Also, I think it was just #2 pine or whatever HD has. Should I have gotten like #1 or maybe prime?

Has to be a joke since even PMF fabbed blocks are only $120 and the compressive strength of pine 2x4 is very low.
I think "duct" tape or flex seal would be a better chouce in your build.
