    Well:

    I'm on the tail end of a RC 4"-lift install and am wondering if I installed the re axle blocks correctly. I installed them with the thinner edge toward the transfer case. Any feedback would be appreciated.

    yeap thats the right way, it cuases the axle to turn up so the angles is right on the driveline.

    Sounds like you got it correct, but make sure the tapered end is on the axle side. You want the square end against the spring and the taper towards the axle. That way it tips the pinion up, and not moving the axle back. The blocks in the rear of mine were installed upside down when I bought it.
