gday everyone

i would like to lower my ute some more ( almost rim tuck ) at rear.
atm it has 2.5 lowering blocks and im not sure whitch direction to go now.
the shocker is pretty close to the ground and really dont want to put bigger blocks in.

i was told to take out 1 tonne leaf springs and put normal ones in ?

anyone with some knowledge about this would be great

cheers

clint.

ps. plz dont ask me to do a search because i already have and nothing....

Get rid of the lowering blocks there s**t! Do it right, go down to pedders and get them to reset the rear leafs to what ever hight u want simple. It cost me $180 to do them on my old ute.

The load sensing valve for the rear brakes may need readjusting due to the change in ride height - check with a brake place about this.

Get some King Spring replacement rear leaf springs or get yours reset.

Geeze, I spoze a reset will make em sag quickly theres a low answer! Id make the pack suit or have them built to suit as one of the other posts said.

Just a personal thing, but getting it made is prob better, just because its low etc etc doesnt mean it will be on rails, check your leaf camber, and adjust spring rate to suit ie thickness of the leaf, how many in a pack and also get some good pads thrown in them for good measure, also look ask some questions regarding the overall length of the leaf to make sure shackle angle is on the money, it will make for a good over all ride.
