Re: Rear Add-A-Leaf

Sorry I looked in the kit and no add-a-leafs. I do have some 5" blocks. I am not going to use them but who would? I am going to use the 4" flip I got from you then a 3" block for now.

Laters, Ryan

Re: Rear Add-A-Leaf

the 0-rate thingies are by ORD, but they are not listed on the you noticed. you have to email the guy directly and tell him you need them. $30 plus a few for shipping($7-$10)

Re: Rear Add-A-Leaf

Yeah, I'm glad to see the stuff I sent you is being put to good use.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] And as far as 5" blocks[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/shocked.gif[/img], no thanks. I have 3.5" blocks right now and thats too much for me already. I'm gonna check the price at our one local, real, 4x4 shop today. Thanks for lookin though. Also, I saw the 1" ORD thingy on CK5, so I noticed I would need a whole inch of extra ubolt to put them in. I have about 5/8". Nutz. Or that would be the way to go. Or, how much are U-Bolts? That Long? Still prob. be cheaper than the 60 dollar add-a-leafs.

Re: Rear Add-A-Leaf

U-bolts can be cheap or expensive. When I put the ORD 0 rates on, I had to get new ones. I found some that were like $25 at AutoZone for all 4, but they looked really cheap and cheesy. Not what I wanted under my truck holding my rear axle to the springs.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] So I went to NAPA and found the exact ones that would work, and boy, were they beefy. Cost me about $50. Expensive, but these things are at least as good as the factory ones. They didn't come with lock nuts though, so I reused the factory lock nuts.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img]
