yea it is quite a bit easier with the whole rear end hanging, as in the the whole rear of the truck in the air. Then you use a jack or 2 to manipulate the rear end and leaf springs. I wouldnt be too worried about shit slipping out of place it all in there pretty tight.

ya nothing to worry about that...it helps to have the as end up so you can get under the truck better ..tring to do this on your back is a pain in the ass..the higher the truck is ( and you..haha) always helps to be able to move around

Ok so I managed to install the blocks about 15 minutes ago but i have a problem. Something is making a nasty metal grinding noise, at first i thought it was the drums but now im worried its the drive shaft.(but i dont feel any vibration).??? what could it be and how do you guys think i can fix this? please help...

I fixed it...turns out my axle was tweaked even tho the blocks were installed right. I had to reinstall one of the blocks without lining up bump on the top of the leafspring, i know that isnt the right way to install it but its the only way i dont get a nasty grinding noise. I lined the little hole in the driveshaft mount with the bump on the block, installed te ubolts and tightend the crap outta them. imma post pics soon..

Sounds like your carrier bearing is binding up or the drive shaft is pushing into the trany.

It is NOT safe to have your blocks sitting like that. I would suggest loosening your carrier bearing and redoing them the correct way then wiggle your drive shaft a little so it rest correctly then retighten your carrier bearing. See if that works, if not check the trany, if the trany is the problem you will need to move the axle back a little somehow.

Also having one side off like that will make your truck drive slighly sideways, you can have someone drive behind you to see if it is. Common problem with blocks installed wrong.
