rear lift block kit for 31 spline axels

anyone know where i can order a 3" block kit with extended ubolts? or if one for a f150 or explorer would work? the superlift rear i had the ubolts would not fit my axel tube.

if you already have a rear block. im pretty sure you do. dont stack block. get some beltech drop shackles they will lift the rear 2 inches. im sure you have hear of them on here before

my current problem is my belltechs, pushing the axel forward under hard flex causing my tire to smash the body and flare. so im pretty much looking for what superlift sells for the rear but ubolts that will fit my bigger axel tube.

Yes, they are longer. How many inches of blocks will you have?

it would be the factory block and a 3" aftermarket. i found superlift part number 10764 on summit that are 9/16 dia, 3.25 wide and 10" long so if they will work ill get those but it seems like the factory ubolts were about that long, i cant remember. not sure exactly how long i will need. also is the correct width of blocks i need 2.5"?

i dont know how else to get rid of my shackels man, i dont really want to but its cutting the living **** out of my tire. ive tried a few local junk yards with no luck, was hoping to get sport trac springs but cant even find a plain exploder, im sure if they did have them id get raped with what they charge.just measured my stock ubolts they are 10" long so i will definatly need longer ones as there is about an inch of threads left. if i do use blocks i will probably ditch the oem ones and use just one 4-5" on each side.

I could have sworn my stock u-bolts were 8" long. I don't know where you can get u-bolts longer than 10" pre-made. They will probably have to be custom made.
