blocks in the rear?

I put 1 1/2 inch blocks under the rear of my truck the other day, i put them on top of the factory blocks. I was wondering if it matters whether they go under the factory blocks or on top? thanks.

I don't think it does either - but I would look into getting ONE block made that is the correct size or buying a small rear spring lift. Stacked blocks aren't a good idea.

you shouldnt worry about it to much at all. just torque those U bolts down tight every few hundred miles and its all good.

as llong as the blocks arent wedged it wont matter. the fastory blocks usually have the bump stops. so I would put the bump stop (factory) blocks on top so your tire wont ever get into your fender.

out of curiosity...are blocks used in these trucks 2.5" or 3" wide? And would the low side of a tapered block be torward the front of the truck or the rear?

The thicker side of the block goed to the front. This will kick the axle up so it gives you a better pinion angle and not be so hard on you u-joints. So the wedge goes on bottom and thinner side goes to the front on truck
