Wanted: 98-07 Rear axle blocks for Ford Ranger 4x4

I am looking to do the pre key lift on my 2010 ford ranger but am having trouble finding the rear axle blocks. I was hoping someone has a set here. Looking for the blocks removed from a 1998-2007 Ford ranger.

Thanks in advance.

Where are you located? I've been contemplating switching out my 2.5" factory blocks for the post '07 blocks.

you can do away with the axle spacer clocks and go with the superlift ford explorer leaf springs

9.75 inches of arch .

^ What is the difference in the post 07 blocks? Can't be too crazy since it is just a lift block and all.

spacer blocks damage your leaf springs beyond repair

the superlift springs will provide you with 4 inches of lift with the spacer blocks removed

1" difference. 08+ are only 1.5" blocks

While I'll agree that no block is best, him switching to the larger oem block isn't going to ruin his springs.

the spacer blocks will bend his leaf spring into a W pattern

i paid good money for a pair of 1,700 pound capacity springs only to have the spacer blocks destroy them in less than 3 months

the 2nd choice i posted will provide weight carrying capacity as well as eliminating the spacer block

There are also millions of rangers riding around on oem blocks and don't have a problem. Maybe those leaf springs were not as good a quality as you thought.
