jacked rear end lift

new to the ford world and love my 03 sd. just have a question.... the guy i bought the truck off of had the truck lifted and it has 2 four inch blocks(each side, not including the factory block) in the rear end to lift it.... the blocks have shifted and i have never seen 2 lift blocks used. the rear end has slightly shifted and is eating up tires.... what would be the best way to fix it? i thought about doing an ad a leaf and a bigger factory block and a 5 inch block. what are your thoughts

maybe take it to a spring shop and have your back springs re-arched and toss the blocks.if not you could try finding different blocks

use lift springs....or keep your ride perfect and use the ouo traction blocks( they'll make the lift size block whatever you want ) and it has your traction bars....they're just really expensive.....

I didn't like my setup when I bought it either and it was just the factory blocks with 6" blocks stacked on top of those. I did the math and completely eliminated my blocks all together. Just put some 8" Springs on there and called it a day. It did ride a little rougher, but I don't get wheel hop in the sand anymore and I feel a whole lot safer for $525.
