dude i went to pedders too, and they rang a bloke who knows about that stuff.

they ordered me a set of 2.5" mitsubishi triton lowering blocks.

Youll need to drill out the bottom of the lowering blocks to 16mm diameter hole, and just get different u-bolts, as the triton ones are too fat. I think the u-bolts the guy at pedders gave me are toyota hilux ones. im not too sure though

yer i put 2" blocks in the back of my mine, i had triton blocks and had to machine the middle section out a bit more to make way for the bolt.

remember if u wind ur torsions down u must do a wheel alignment...

Why dont you all try just getting your rear springs reset! (Ends up cheaper and more effective!) Will give you the chance to fit new bushes as the old one are most probably kaput anyway!

Lowering blocks stuff up torque reaction ratio....EG: Axle wind up. At an extreme example you could well pull the tailshaft out of the back of your gearbox and that would be nasty!!!

True that, resetting is the best way, no springs almost touching the ground coz of huge blocks, cheap as, only cost me carton to get mine done, but I do know the guy :p
