    Does this block look like it\'s backwards

    I went to a 4x4 shop to see if they could fix the problem that I was having where my u-joints were breaking and one of the guys told me that my block were backwards is this true he said that was my main problem, that the blocks had to be turned around what do you think guys, does this guy know what he's talking about.

    well, if the front/rear labels you put on the pic are correct. Yes they do look right. The blocks look as if they have an angle to them, which according to the pic, is causing the pinion to point upward, therefor decreasing the angle of the driveline. So yes, he is wrong. Hope this helps

    It looks to me that your blocks are in the right way. The smaller side is in the front or towards the front of the truck. The bigger side is in back so this would point the pinion upward. maybe I am missing something to but I believe that they are right.
