back wheel not centered

I've got a fx4 250 with a ready lift sst and my back axel is not centered. Its a tapered block on the rear 3 5/8 to 4 inch. It sits back about an 1 1/2. My truck is a super/extra cab long bed. Its also on 35 inch tires. So my question is how do I fix this. thanks. mark

Get some blocks with an adjustable center pin......like the OUO blocks. Get them with the adjustable top plates and you can shift the axle:

Dan beat me to it. My axle was way back with my 8" but got the OUO adjustables with the traction block kit and it sits centered now.

Thanks guys. Dc, if I got the blocks or the traction blocks would I get the tapered one's. I like that you can get the block in 4 1/2 inches. Can I get the traction blocks in 4 1/2 inches. The other thing can I get the traction block in a fixed length for a long bed. Thanks. Mark.
