i'm guessing they stick hockey pucks in their springs to act as spacers. or replace body bushings with the pucks.. that's the only thing i can think of..

Actually, seeing as theyre hard rubber, it could help absorb some shock and rough ride. As long as you get the right bolts i think theyll be alright. And if you can find em cheap enough. Thats actually a really good idea. Most poly body lift blocks are hard as a rock. I really dont see any problems with this, except replace em every 2 years when they start to dry rot, but still, i seriously hate how rough the truck rides and this might work. As long as everything else is done correctly i dont think there will be any problems.

also, the hockey pucks seem to be more sturdy than a body lift from say.. summit racing..

As long as you drill good holes in the center, cover the pucks in a sealant or coating to help it last, and viola, youve got a nice shock absorbing body lift, get the right hardware and you've got no problems.
