Could anyone tell me; I'm running an AFCO adjustable lowering block in a leaf spring rear end, which allows you to dial in some rear steer if you want it, what I'm wondering after reading a few threads here, do you put this on the left or right hand spring? Also, why do you run it on on that spring, or dose it not matter on which spring you run it?

Shouldn't really matter which side ya put it.Back in my leaf spring days I actually ran one on each side. Just keep track of your adjustment as you move it.

If your just going to use one,put it on the left.This will move the rollcenter slightly to the left which helps the car to roll for improved sidebite.Blocks on both sides lowers rollcenter.

If I run lowering blocks on both sides and lower the roll center, dose this improve or remove side bite?

Also I sould have said in my first post that I was running a fixed lowering block on the other side.

The guys around here,run a 2 1/2 block on the right side and 1 1/2 on the left with one adjustable on both sides. and once you have to put more than 3" in the right side to get your left rear bite and keep your ride height, Then you need to replace springs.
