Welcome to the org, and I know this sounds dumb but was your axle straight when you put it back in, like at the knuckle? If its a 2 piece that is. Or mabye your axle is wrapped up

If your getting lots of axle wrap with the lift it will pop out. I would check out the quality of the lift and have someone watch the rear springs and see how bad they are twisting up

Three blocks on the rear? I've always heard that stacking blocks was a no-no. Cheers!
