I ordered a set of blocks from summit, Belltech 6102, and noticed that the blocks have a slight angle to them. One side is taller than the other. Is this normal? And how would I install them?

Thicker end toward front, to maintain proper pinion angle.

did the blocks come with the proper u bolts? Be sure to use anti seize on those

Thanks for the quick response. I believe the ubolts are the right size. According to summit, the are for a 3.25" axle. I went out side to sort of test fit them. I didn't put them completely on the axle because the were scratching (I'll wait to scratch it more during install). Still might need to use a hammer like I've heard others do. I had the U bolt next to the stock one, seems the same size to me

if you are lowering the explorer you want the taller end at the back. so it point the pinion down.
