Don't dodge trucks come with a block between the axle and leafs factory ?? if u add another 4.5-5" on top of that.. Yea that will be insane axle wrap... id look fo a set of 3/4 ton lift springs..

3/4 ton springs won't work, they are 3" wide and mine are only 2.5"

Yes, dodge came with a 3" block, but after installing diesel coils in the front and a 3" AAL in the rear i am still 2-3 shy in the rear.....looks really nasty :miff:

I'm planning on 86'n the stock 3" block in favor of a taller one........i won't stack blocks, that's just insane to say the least

Axle wrap is still going to a issue. I only put three inch blocks in the rear of mine to pic the back end up with the front and its just getting worse and worse as the springs get weaker. If you are going to run a block that tall you should concider either making or buying some traction bars. They will also cause your springs to wear faster.

yeah i know auto-zone has them, but was hoping i could find some thicker ones, like from a ford or something.

Axle wrap shouldn't be that bad.....had 6" blocks on my old GMC and never had a problem. Besides, i'm already thinking about the traction bars and/or ladder bars.

Might just add a couple of leafs to the pack.....might actually gain some load capacity too if i go that route
