Default Angled Lowering block direction (updated w/ pics)

I know I read this hear before but I cant find it in a search...
Which way should I install my angled block, should the high side be towards the back or the front?

Thanks for that, hopefully I will get a chance to install them this weekend now that the weathers getting nice.
BTW, nice car, one of the sickest static drops on the site. Hopefully I'll have mine lookin like yours in a few months if I can handle that extreme of a drop on crappy jersey roads.

ya that makes sense but I haven't noticed any, the directions suck too.But i guess the whole procedure should be fairly obvious once I start working on it. I think my blocks are DJM, its a white box that says universal drop block or something like that, they are four inch angled blocks.

take it slow...when we did mine it helped if you have a homeboy help you ....jack the whole back up and take both sides down at the same time ....put a floor jack on the rear end so you can move it around alittle and it also helps to move thr rear end up and down for better alinement...then take the u bolts off and set them aside the bolcks come with new ones 2 put back in they R longer.......after that it is preaty much put the blocks in and put eveything back together...rember to trim you bump stops in the back and also you will want to check your block in a few weeks to make sure they are still tight...hope the info helps

the first time i did both sides and my axle fell, sucked to be me
would also be much better if you had an access to a lift, much easier

Thats for sure a lift would be first on my list but hay..work with what you got right...we tried it one side at a time at first and it just kept binding up so we just dropped the whole thing and it was a snap after that

Well doesnt look like im gonna be able to get this done this weekend, other things came up. But you guys are makin me a little nervous about the install, I was planning on doing this one side at a time with one jack on the frame and another under the axle. I figured the drive shaft would not be able to slip out as long as one leaf is ubolted on at all times.

Any tips on what not to do? or typical noob mistakes?

could i just use one jack under the axel to get the pressure off the leaf and undo the ubolt, without lifting the frame?
