WTB 1955-1959 4" Lift Blocks.

Hi all!

I'm looking for a pair of Napco lift blocks for my 57' GMC 100. Napco blocks would be ideal but at this point I'd be willing to consider alternatives that would fit.

These should be 4" in height, 2" width with either a 1/2 or 9/16 pin.

Thanks in advance!

I found a set for my 56 Napco at a spring shop,that does small to large trucks.
The bigger the shop,the better chance you have.

Don't know what kind of hurry you are in for these but I will sell my set when the replacement springs go into mine.

Iíd say sometime within the next month or two (probably closer to two). Like you my list is long and distinguished and there are other things that can be shuffled.

Long story but some jack wagon decided to swap out the entire rear end to make it more drivable on the highway. The perches on the junkyard rear didnít align so he ditched the blocks in favor of some very well made channel iron blocks. I located a Chevy rear (gmc is impossible to find) and Iím in the process of getting that ready, but also have to address the front brakes and master cylinder.

Bottom line is there is plenty of time and I greatly appreciate your offer!

Brakes are the third item on this list. Found some nice options at CPP. Like a firewall brake booster and pedal for power brakes.
