any place that sells performance accesories body lifts can order 1 inch replacement blocks they are like two or three bucks each. i just went down to 4wheel parts and got mine when i did my 1 inch last spring. i used to have a link to the page on 4wheelparts website. if you go to their site and search performance accesories body lifts just look for the 3 inch diameter 1 inch high replacement blocks.

How long did it take you to do the 1" BL? I work at a dealership and have a lift, air tools, and a O/A torch to use. Do you think I could do just the cab in 2 hrs. I don't have jumpseats anymore so I can access the rear bolts easy and can pull the plastic in the front ahead of time to save time. I could do the bed and front bumper mod another day. I don't see why this isn't possible.

I did my 1" in a whopping 3 hrs. It was myself and a buddy...both of us have never installed a bodylift prior, but we have un-installed one prior to my lift....but that was on a simple simple 78 chev.

1" and 32's ftw!

Fx4wannabe01 has a manual. I think I read that he had to clearance the console a little or the shifter would hit. I might make a 1.5" extension to raise the shifter a little.

with a manual you will hit the center console in 2nd gear. but mines been like that for 7 or 8 months it still goes in gear it just ratles your console. im going to fix mine in the summer.

that has been asked several times. i personaly think it would be easier to do the 3 inch rather than try to do a two. i know when i did my 1 inch i didnt have any troubles other than the fact that now i wish i had done the 3 inch body lift and 33s instead
