no if you remember that the droop will differ by 7mm.

I use a low car stand to measure droop. hudy blocks are just overpriced pieces of aluminum

I thaught the hudy blocks where 10mm? Just measure this size of the droop gauge if the number 4 on the gauge is 14mm then its a 10mm block you need. In a perfect world anyway

Hey lonney, the Hudy stuff looks really cool and of course is quality shit but honestly you can just as easily adjust downstops with the cheap AE graphite gauge and its just a few bucks, not yo mention you can adjust them with the ass end of the car up off the table instead of having to crouch down and look inner the blocks.

Yip its a 14mm at #4 ..But the height is 20mm at 10......So they hudy ones would make the gauge level at 10....so i will have to compensate by 3mm on these block i have coming as they are 13mm
