Lift block question

I had my truck lifted and they put an angled block in the back , which pushed my axle back . Now its not centered with the wheel well . My 39" BFG projects come close to hitting the back fender .

Would a fabricated lift block with a flat surface correct this issue ?

Thanks,
Travis

Turn the blocks around, they put them in backwards

Thats why I decided to do mine myself!!! That way I know all fasteners are torqued to specs and that all cables/wires are properly ziptied or secured properly!! As the saying goes you want it done right do it yourself!!

I did it in a driveway as well, A lot more work than it seems like it should be, but at least you get to see everything that is going into it.
