carrier bearing, is this stock mount or spacer?

I just took my lift off my 07 f250. The problem is I dont know if this is the factory mount or if this was a spacer I need to take out. It looks to be about 3/4" thick or so. Im thinking that the bearing housing should just bolt to the frame without this piece but since Ive never looked at a stock one, I have no idea. Thanks

I could be wrong but looked at mine, it's not think like that. About 1/8 inch of metal on top of rubber. That looks like a spacer

I would think with a 6" lift, it would need a spacer. It was a good quality kit and it was installed very nice. By that I mean everything had lok tite and all the stuff was secured nicely and neatly. Truck drove straight as an arrow. I would think if it needed to be there, it would have been there judging by the rest of the kit. That being said, I have no idea since Ive never looked at a stock one before. I really see no point in having that thick piece of metal there if its not a spacer. Im thinking if i needed to be that much lower, Ford would have just made it up in the bearing housing vs putting that spacer in there. I could be wrong though. Guess Ill do some more digging. Somone may come out of walmart and find me looking at their undercarriage.. That might be a hard one to explain.

You are right, with a 6 in. lift, it should have had a spacer. One even came with my 2.5 in. lift. I'm telling ya though, what you have in that picture is factory.
