No worries, hey look like the RBP mud flaps but obviously they arn't because you got them from the dealer. might be one of those dealer specific things, my truck had these god aweful "mud flaps" that were places between the bed and bumper and they didnt stop crap and were held in by self tapping screws that ended up rusting (fixed the rust though).

Nice ride man! Head lights are pretty sweet, are they bright? The bumper is what I want!

If you look at the front beams foe the axle back to the frame under the drivers floor you should see the original bolt the arms were held with and the one they're held with now measure the distance between the bolts. That's a good place to start on lift size.

Thanks very much, Midnite...!

I crawled under and did some measuring. As you suspected, I found the new and old bolts in the front are 4" apart, while the stacked blocks in the rear add up to 5".


Front suspension lift 4"


Rear suspension lift 5" - 2" and then another 3"

Not sure what the thoughts are of the crew here on the forum, but I've seen ads talking about it being ok to stack blocks and others saying it's illegal, so I need to figure out what is what.

Another interesting thing to me is that I continue to believe it looks like the front end of mine is higher than the rear (perhaps by an inch or more), but the measurements above don't seem to pan out to support what it looks like to me.




Thanks again for your help...!

I don't think its illegal by any means, your just going to get axle wrap when you hit it.

I love the monochromatic look of the new fender flares. I'd love to add them to mine, as well.

Was it expensive to get them painted to match...?

Confirmed, Scott. Axle wrap has been an issue. Sounds like I have my next item to replace.

About the same as the flares, if you want it done right.

Thats why in signature it says "6" lift all springs no blocks" . Not cheap but much better on handling.There is another option you can do is ladder bars that go from axle to frame. They say that is supposed to help but sorry I'm not familiar with them. Looking nice though

Just so you understand, axle wrap isn't caused by the blocks. It happens to all leaf sprung vehicles.

Not by stacked blocks??? I have a 6" lift and experience 0 axle wrap and I will get on it hard. I was always told that stack blocks is the main cause of axle wrap. Learn something new.

Thanks, Stewart. Does stacking accentuate the axle wrap...?

The further you get from the axle, the more pronounced the wrap will be.

Stacked blocks are even worse since there can conceivably be enough force exerted on the blocks that the blocks push apart and blow out.

You still have it, but your springs are stiff enough to resist the rotational forces trying to twist the springs into an S shape, to the point you don't feel it.

I have One Up Offroad traction bar/lift block combination on my truck to eliminate any wrap that would be induced by the twisting motion of the axle housing as it reacts to the engine torque during acceleration or from braking force on deceleration.

Ok, your explanations sounds dead on. Not necessarily Ford here but all vehicles with axle to leaf will do it your just going to notice it more with taller/added blocks. The leaf itself is where it all starts, correct? I mean you know your stuff hear and i'm not questing you but more on myself.
