Body Lift Crush Blocks

OK... So the third to last step on the BL is to install these crush blocks, and weld them in. The problem I'm haveing is that I can't just wedge them in by hand. I'm sure I could tap them in with a hammer. They are about 1/8 to big. Anyone else have this problem? Or any Ideas?

Thanks
Joshua

Hmm welding w/ a bodylift. Crush blocks?

I never welded anything on my bodylift and never had any problem in over a year of very hard use.

your supposed to put them in before you bolt the bed in. I don't even think my instructions mentioned them.

those instructions are retarted. they tell you to put them in after you already torqued the bed bolts. I'm putting them in tomorrow. Better safe than sorry.
