3-inch blocks

Hi All,

I just bought a set of Trail-master 3-inch blocks for the rear of my 89 Jimmy (fullsize) and there is a pinion angle cast into them ...my question is which way do they go in???
Thanks in advance.
Mike

They go in with the thicker part at the rear of the truck.

Just think, you want to rotate the pinion up, not down.

Depends if it's spring under or spring over, but with spring over the thick part should be at the rear.
