Were those blocks a true 3" wide? Also what ubolts did you use? Do you have any pictures of your van on here?
Again I appreciate the response! I have some bigger tires at the shop waiting for me to get the suspension figured out
All dimensions of the 1" block I have are within 0.030".
The pin is 9/16" but the Dana 60 FF has 5/8" holes in the spring pads. I think it is close enough.
As I recall some of the suppliers I found would send you a 2.5" wide block and call it a 3" wide block (for F250/350). I returned them and stopped looking at this supplier.
I was just going to sneak the 1" spacer on the stock U bolt and sorry I have never installed them. The van was involved in a wreck (totaled) and I have t moved to a new 2000 E350 XLT EB.
FYI if you have not seen It yet, large 3+" blocks are not recommended because it changes the pinion angle. I recall 2" may be the most that is tolerable with new springs being preferable.
I'm looking at a combination of Monroe heavy-duty overloads and air springs along with the 1" block. The new van has an extra 800 lbs on the lift on the passenger side so the exact combination I'm not quite sure of yet.
I'm doing an all-around brakes (disks, hoses, pads and caliper rebuild, booster /master.) update right now with the 2008+ front disk upgrades.
I also bought the MOOG CC81366 Coil Spring Set along with F/R sway bars.
The 2000 E-350 XLT is a V-10 with 300K miles so it probably need the new springs more than my old 1997 with 125K miles
