53chev: Sometimes the frame is tweaked a bit and the block height needs to be adjusted. The rear sill bracket is 4 inches tall. Each of the other mounting points needs to be just high enough to make the tops of all the cross sills level with each other and the top of the rear sill wood mounting surface. Shave your blocks if necessary to get everything level. Also, check the splash apron clearance to the bed side as that is controlled by the mounting block height.

I just attached my bed this weekend using the 2 5/16" tall blocks I purchased online. They did not raise the bed enough to clear the top of the shocks. I bought some Maple and cut new ones at 3". This will give me some trouble when I go to install the running boards which I don't own yet. I'll have to jump that bridge when I get to it. I noticed that some online companies sell mounting pads for each block as well as the rear sill. The site I bought from only sold pads for the rear sill so I cut some of my own. 51 chevy 3/4 ton
