Most drop blocks are a universal fit. Usually come in 2 inch, 3 inch, and 4 inch. Once you get to 3 inch and 4 inch blocks you can have a choice to get them angled. The angle usually helps to fix the pinion angle you misaligned when you lowered it but is not a true fix. You would have to get your driveshaft modified to truly fix the problem. I personally do not like drop blocks over 3 inches, just too much stress on the factory equipment. Usually tears up the carrier bearing quicker.

I admit this is what I did on my daily.

With the lowered springs you will need new rear shocks. I replaced the rubber bushings while I was at it. $35 blocks ended up to be $300 in parts, itís addictive.
