2017-2019 F250/F350/F450 Rear Block Install *Leveling Kit*
Welcome back to the channel! In this video, we’ll be taking a look at dropping down the rear of a truck by just a tad. The reason for this is because there is about an inch and a quarter rake, which means that the truck is leaning down a little bit. The front wheels are around 45 and 14 16, while the rear is around 47 inches. This gives about an inch and a quarter worth of rake, which is a little too much. Next month, a different front bumper will be installed, which will cause a little more sag in the front suspension.
To prepare for this, the rear axle is elevated, and jack stands are ready to go. Each side will be done one at a time, using Pro Comp four-inch rear blocks. These blocks are affordable and will get the job done. The same U-bolts may or may not be used.
The BDS lift kit has 425 pounds per inch front coil spring. This means that if 425 pounds are put on a coil, it will sag one inch. Since the bumper is roughly 300 pounds and the stock bumper is around 80 pounds, this means that about 220 pounds need to be accounted for. This will cause the truck to sag roughly half an inch.
Overall, dropping down the rear of the truck by just a tad will help to balance out the rake and prepare for the installation of a different front bumper. The Pro Comp four-inch rear blocks are an affordable and effective solution for this task.
In this video, the speaker discusses their plan to drop the rear of their vehicle to achieve a more level look. They explain that if they were to keep the current rake and not touch the suspension, they would have roughly an inch and three-quarters of rake, which would not be desirable. They want to achieve a flush level look, with only a quarter-inch difference from the rear to the front.
The speaker also mentions that they plan to add a bumper to give them a little rake so that when they are towing their boat, the front end won’t look like it’s staring at the sky. They then proceed to explain how they plan to complete the project, which involves raising the rear axle with two jacks and doing each side at a time. They also mention that they have removed the wheels and are using centromatics, which are working out extremely well for them.
The speaker emphasizes the importance of safety and explains that they have placed two jack stands along the center of the chassis. They also mention that they did not release their shocks because they are only decreasing the amount of distance or lowering the rear end.
Overall, the video provides a detailed explanation of the speaker’s plan to drop the rear of their vehicle and achieve a more level look. They also provide helpful tips and emphasize the importance of safety throughout the project.
In this video, the speaker is discussing how to raise a truck and is currently working on the driver’s side. He prefers to work on one side first so he can provide tips and tricks that helped him out. He had already finished the passenger side and used the same u-bolts for the driver’s side.
To begin, he used two jacks underneath the axle and lowered the right side a little bit to have enough clearance to drop the jack in the side of the axle. He then loosened the two u-bolts and removed both nuts on one side to pull out the u-bolt and block. He compared the old and new blocks and showed how the new block declines when pointed towards the front.
He then slipped the new block in and raised it up to make sure it was lined up and flush. The axle was pulled a little bit to help the block fall into place.
Overall, the video provides a step-by-step guide on how to raise a truck and the speaker shares his personal tips and tricks that helped him during the process.
In this video, the presenter demonstrates how to install a u-bolt on a truck. He starts by placing the u-ball back down and putting it through the mount. He then puts the nut and washer back on and tightens it up to 150 foot-pounds. He repeats the process on the other side and ensures that each nut is torqued down to 150.
After finishing the installation, the presenter shows the truck and its new look. He had previously installed a four-inch rear block instead of a five-inch one, and the truck now sits level. He mentions that the front end is just a tad high, but it’s hardly noticeable.
The presenter also shares a story about helping a stranger push his car in a Starbucks drive-through. He parked his truck on the side and walked in, only to find out that he couldn’t enter the store due to COVID-19 restrictions. He decided to move on with his day and showed off his truck’s new look to the viewers.
Overall, the video provides a helpful guide on how to install a u-bolt on a truck and showcases the presenter’s truck’s new look.
In a recent video, the speaker discusses their desire for a new front bumper for their truck. They mention that they are open to recommendations from viewers in the comments section. The speaker then shows their truck from different angles, noting that they prefer the level look for their vehicle. They explain that if you tow frequently, you may want a rake in the back to prevent the truck from sagging too much when weight is added. However, the level look works for them based on what they typically tow.
The speaker then discusses their research into lifting the front end of the truck. They explain that adding front pucks above the coil springs would mess with the geometry of the vehicle and require significant adjustments to the front suspension. Instead, they decide to manipulate the rear end by decreasing the size of the rear blocks. This will allow them to maintain the level look they prefer while still being able to tow their boat without the truck sagging too much.
Overall, the speaker is looking for a new front bumper for their truck and is open to recommendations from viewers. They prefer the level look for their vehicle and have decided to manipulate the rear end to maintain this look while still being able to tow their boat.
In this video, the speaker talks about his experience with installing rear blocks on his truck. He mentions that it was a better move because it did not hamper the alignment that he originally had. He also recommends this process to anyone who wants to drop their rear just a tad.
The speaker mentions that the process is very simple and took him no longer than an hour. He bought the rear blocks off of Amazon and they were Pro Comp. He also looked at some Ready Lifts, but ultimately went with the Pro Comps because they were $20 cheaper. He used the same u-bolts, nut, and washers, and everything worked out as advertised.
The speaker loves the look of his truck, but acknowledges that it’s all about what you like and how you want to make your truck look. He invites any comments or questions and signs off by saying “see y’all until next time.”
