In order to put the quick release, did you have a adapter hub? or just the quick release hub?

Thanks! Running on money troubles, so it'll take a while. But it will be one of the cleanest static dropped hardbody in the Dfw!

you have to have a momo/sparco hub or a nardi/nismo/hkb etc. hub.
the quick releases have either pattern on the part that attaches to the hub so you can use either steering hub to connect your quick release to. then your wheel.

ironically enough my expensive works bell hub was nardi pattern specific, and my cheaper chinese hub, identical in nearly every way was dual pattern, i have 2 of those and i use them on my cars for swapping around. momo hubs can usually be had for around 60 bucks or cheaper. not sure on where the quick release prices are now a days

5" is the largest I've seen being used.

Ive never seen 5" but people on here claim to have them. I have 4" with tapered angle. Id hate to see what 5" would do for your driveline angles. That can be fix tho by shimming your carrier bearing.

I feel ya on wanting just a bit lower. I need 1" more in rear to tuck tires but im too scared to redrill and im not mono leafing it either.

4" blocks with main plus center leafs left together in each pack will get you fairly low. 4" blocks leave your axle mounts too close to the ground for my liking so with 5.5" blocks your axle mounts will be dragging on alot of stuff. And you will likely need to notch your frame when slamming the truck.

I wouldn't recommend it but I'm running 6" blocks, two 3 inch blocks welded together...it's not safe, if I have a flat my lower shock mount could start scraping..if your running a rim bigger than 18s then you might be fine..I'm on 18s and the shock mount hangs about a half inch lower than the rim..but about 2 inches from the ground..
