hhhmmm well ive put them some where safe so i wont loose them lol and well i cant find them lol... any way there are just a piece of billet alloy that you put on the under side of your diff mounting position between the diff and the leaf springs affectivly lowering yor car the width of the piece of alloy very simple very cheap i will have a better look later for them so i can post you a pic just google lowering blocks or go to your local performance shop and ask them there are heaps of differant heights you can get , they come in a kit with longer mounting U bolts that you must use..

get the leaves reset, and while they are doing it get one or two extra leaves in it to stiffen it up, no more axle tramp ever, better handling and looks tops.

lowering blocks make it look better but dont improve the handling at all, still the same old springs and ride. plus they always work loose if your running decent power thru the diff.

Depends how much you wanna spend. Cheap option is getting the leafs reset. Doing it properly is getting new springs

Brand new King Springs leaf springs x 2, (to match "low" ride height),
for an EB wagon is about $240.
Part No. FOR-607 I believe.
