I had someone follow me out today as i drove to work, I am trailing straight. That doesn't mean I am comfortable with my less than perfect install but it does seem to be lined up OK drive train wise.

I don't think the angled block is the problem, my axle is tweaked so that i cant line up the male/female tabs on the axle/block/leaf/and lower shock mount, in my mind the angle doesn't have much to do with that.

Also I don't know if i had said that one side is installed perfect, its my passengers side that i couldn't line up all the male/female tabs.

you must line up all the pins and holes first off the find out what your sound problem really is not safe at all the way you described what you did do. and with how much gear oil is on that rearend I'd check that level also while you r under there.

I dont know if youre still working on it but Ive found that dropping the drive shaft, easy 4 bolts, also helps heaps when trying to align that shit

Damn it, you know at this point even tho the truck drives fine, im scared to drive it on the highway (due to the 2 warnings I have gotten in this thread). Im using my other car for now and hopefully this weekend I can get it on a lift and check out how the axle, drive shaft and bearings line up. I installed the blocks in my driveway using a little hydrolic jack and a bottle jack, kinda scary getting under there to see whats going on and even scarier wrenching under it.

Hell ya im still working on this, im going to get it right eventually...Thanks for the tip man, i might have to do that....

It's just really fustrating because the truck drove really nice stock and it drives really nice now with my f-ed up install but it sounds like shit when all is installed properly(but only when i let off the gas). I was looking forward to sorting out the front end suspention but now it like back to the drawing board on the rear setup...ugh

invest in jack stands. they save lifes. and if you do drop th drive shaft, mark it first.

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?
Did mine for the first time took about 30min.
I jacked up the whole rear of the truck and a jack stand on each side towards the rear on the frame. Left the axle hang and with a jack in under the diff. One side at a time loosend the u bolts then picked up on the jack and slid the block in between and intalled new bolts and tightened up. ( helps if you remove the shock so it dosent pull on the plate than reinstall) repeat on other side. First I did 2" but I wanted more low so got 3". Bolts are the same on both kits so just lossend the bolts slid new block in and tightened back up.
