What's the weight rating on aluminum lift blocks? Any ideas. They are shaped like a cinder block, and are way cheaper to buy the generic stuff vs. ordering through a parts house for an application specific. It's only a 2" so the angles aren't an issue.

I have procomp aluminum blocks. They are solid aluminum though not hollow. Ive had the truck resting on the bump stops many times loaded down and no problems. Solid aluminum is more than strong enough for the application, but i wouldn't trust those hollow aluminum.
