im just going to find a set of adaptors cheap and use them. stuff what the cops say, they bolt on so they are just as safe as any wheel...

i would but i wana go lower, i been hearing with the leaf mod its only like 30 bucks on few things you make up and you got like 4-5 inch drop, would be good to have that. considering a 2 and half drop in wagon is like making the back sit the same as front almost, only a tad lower.
if they was 4 inch block i would say hell yes but i dont think they make a 4 inch block kit for E series wagon?

With the leaf spring mod the two that I know personally that have done have only got around a 2" drop. One of them reports that the rear is now softer than it was before hand.

I have 2.5" blocks in my wagon, and with four adults and sprited driving the tailshaft hits the floor.

Something to consider if you want to go real low.

i think the reason why they dont make 4" blocks is because your springs and bolts for it would be like 2" off the ground in a stock car. where legal would be 4"

I only have 2" in the rears now and the clearance underneath is an issue from the u-bolts. Will find out the legalities on Monday when it gets a new RWC.

3" should be ok. you might have to cut the thread off the u bolts once its attached.

I dont know the legalities but surely you could get two blocks and weld them together and then get some u bolts made up to suit the length. Otherwise resetting the springs is the best choice and you can tell the guys what height you want it to sit and they will do it for you- can range between 300-500 depending if any bushes need replacing.

Agreed. I will be getting mine reset sometime this year.

I get a lot of axle tramp with the blocks.
