    I have 3" blocks and shims- both angled. this angle combines to make my blocks sit back at an angle. I was wondering if i flipped my shims around if it would help this angle? I know it would help the angle, but could i do that safely?

    or maybe i could flip the block around? i'm not too concerned with the pinion angle. . as long as it's drivable

    maybe you could reweld you spring perches to the correct angle, and get rid of the shim.

    no welder. . . no working angle grinder. . . so anyone else, think that would be safe?

    when i added my ORD shackel's for more lift i also had a angled block. my pionon angle was terriable, so i turned the block around and it was all good.
    so if you are asking if you can run a block backward's and it will work,,,, i would have to say YES.
