lift blocks

I am looking for a set of four lift blocks 2" wide x 1-1/2 or 2" tall x 4-1/2 to 5" long for a 24' 5th wheel. Does anyone know of a source to buy them?

Not sure what you mean "lift blocks" 2x2x5long ought to be easy to come up with/put together from scrap wood. Are you just referring to spacer blocks to put under the jacks, or am I misunderstanding what you are needing?

And, welcome to the forum. Hope you visit often.

Thanks for replying but what I am referring to are lift blocks, made of steel, that are installed between the axle and leaf springs to adjust the trailer height. I currently have 4" tall blocks, would like to drop down to 1-1/2" or 2". Making them may be my last resort.

Actually, I have not seen a trailer raised/lowered that way--I have only seen spacers used between the frame rails and the spring mounts, or the axles placed over or under the spring mounts to change the height. Suggest you find a steel supply shop and look at square tubing, or bar stock.

Most auto parts stores have those blocks. They are often used to raise or lower cars or trucks. Usually made out of aluminum solid stock.
