Offroad shop gave me a triple stack...

Just picked my truck up from the local offroad shop having a 6" lift, tires and wheels installed. Upon closer inspection of the install, it appears they stacked three blocks under my rear springs. Is this common for a "professional" install? I know I wouldn't have done that if I had installed it myself....

I had some technical difficulties uploading the picture but I think I solved the puzzle. See if you can view it now.

oh my god , you need to take it back and take those off , its bad enough when 2 blocks are stacked let alone 3 , very dangerous , only way it would be safe is to weld all 3 of them together

That is just asking for the blocks to rotate. If blocks are going to be run they need to be large enough that the ubolts prevent them from turning. They look way too small

PIC may be decieving but those only look like 9/16 u bolts when you really should have 5/8 too.

Honestly that's awful looking and not wise really. Where did the very bottom one come from? I plainly see the new one but that is not a 5" block.

The lowest one has a narrow base to it and is the one I'm concerned about shifting around on you. I have a double stack myself but it is solid and axle wrap is manageable being I am stock tune. Lol.

You need to bring it back and ask for a single 5" or 6" for the lift kit.
Not good nope.

Looking closer it looks like that bottom block is tapered and the other one is not. (I'm on my phone so don't flame me if I'm wrong) but that's where I could see the third block coming from

I didn't think it looked kosher either, just wanted to know everyone else's thoughts.

Tony, I paid $3,100 for 6" Rough Country radius arm drop lift + install + 37" tires + tax. I already had the wheels.
