2.5 level...carrier shim needed?

Just ordered a 2.5 icon leveling kit and Readylift 4" blocks for the rear. Will I need to shim the carrier bearing? I also noticed the Readylift blocks have a taper, will these be ok?

That taper is gonna kill ya, you need a flat block with a 4"! You will have to shim carrier bearing to keep vibe away.
