Hockey Puck???

A guy at my work said he used hockey pucks for a body lift on his k-5 blazer, is he bullshitting or can this be done?

yup, but by the time you buy 10-14 hockey pucks you could have gotten a b/l cheaper on line.

Hockey pucks are $1 each-but they don't like petroleum products.

Thus far, you are so getting off easy: I brought this up earlier this year and you would have thought I posted asking for Green Piece donations!

Don't do it. If it's a Toy, go to 4x4crawler.com and get the Roger Brow....oops, the 4x4Crawler lift. You will never regret it.

If it's not a Toy, it doesn't matter..... you're hosed.


Good luck.

Negative on the hockey pucks. Don't try to botch something together just to save a few bucks. Realize that the body mounts are the main thing that keep the body traveling in the same direction as the chassis. Just buy a regular body lift kit. By the time you by a box full of hockey pucks, longer bolts, big washers, fab extensions for steering and shifters, you might as well have dished out the approx $150 bucks for the body lift kit, which already has all of the correct parts to do it right.

Body lifts are less than a $100 bucks for any vehicle so why bother with hocky pucks and half ass it.. If the truck was for farm use and never going on the road then go for it

yep

yep... i have a 1974 International Scout II with 8 hockey pucks serving as a 1" body lift all the way around. they have held up great... just drill a hole through em big enuf for the body bolts to slip through and loosen each bolt one at a time and slip in the hockey puck, rebolt, repeat. call it a day. i wheel my scout about every other weekend... its only sittin on 31's with stock suspension but those hockey pucks gave me the clearance i needed and they have held up great.
