I want to buy a pair of 1.00" lowering blocks that are correct "out of the box."
Pep Boys, Autozone, maybe O'Reillys. They come in a kit with new U bolts.
Do they have the correct centering posts for the F body????
Looks to me like you would need to add some custom made spacers under the spring plates too.
Anyone have a photo of the blocks installed on a Second Gen???
Thanks for the reply!!!!
The ones I picked up at Pep Boys had the correct centering posts. If you go with the 1" you will need to throw some spacers on the shock plate. I only wanted a 1/2" drop so I cut the blocks down and did not have to add any spacers to the shock plate.
What about Afco blocks?
EDIT: The Autozone kit is only $30, doing it with Afco blocks & U-bolts would run $55.
I just want a 1.00" drop for purely cosmetic reasons. I can fabricate some spacers.
My bolts that hold my rear sway bar brackets are long enough to accept a 1.00" block and still have the diameter of the bolt remaining above the nut!!!!
I will need longer U-Bolts. My buddy's own a suspension shop in Visalia called Gross & Stevens. They have grade 8 U-bolts in a variety of lengths, even stainless material too.
Thanks for the tips!!!!
Calvert Racing has 1/4, 1/2, and 1". I noticed the 1" is a 'kit', didn't say whats in a kit.
Speedway carries high quality Afco blocks at great prices.
Just out of curiosity, what size is the centering post????
We used to use an AFCO block on the race cars that had an adjustable slider built into it...
I just measured the center post on mine and they are slightly under 9/16" in diameter.
