Rear block question

Ordered leveling kit from PMF (Trevor is great guy to deal with ) I ended up getting 4.5" FLAT rear blocks per trevor. My truck is 2010 f250 supercab short bed, are these the right blocks? After doing more research I think I should of got the tapered since i have the one piece drive shaft?

The 4.5" block will only lift your truck about an inch beyond an F 350 of the same cab and bed configuration, and you have a relatively long driveshaft, so you will be good, even jeeps will tolerate a 1" lift without any pinion angle changes.

You are right at the borderline between flat and tapered. I think the tapered would be a little too much for your application. The stock F-350 blocks which are 3.5 or 4" are flat. If you have any trouble with those, I would be happy to swap them out for you.
