Lowering blocks....

Hi all,

I've got the Chassis Eng. parallel leaf kit in my 36 Ford and need to drop it 4 or 5 inches. I know them poor, misguided 4x4 guys run crazy amounts of lift blocks but is there any down side to too much lowering block??

Lowering Blocks

The down sides are scrub line and pinion angle. Keeping those items in check it should not be a problem. I have dropped my 50 chevy 4" with my own home made lowering blocks, adjusted the pinion angle to keep that in check and lastly (which I have not done yet) is cut the U bolts shorter to keep the scrub line in check. I plan to remove some leafs from the brand new OEM springs to lower it a bit (that's why the U bolts have not been cut yet). Hope that helps. If you are not sure about the scrub line and pinion angle, do a search on here. There is tons of information.
