that sounds like the axle shims, not a lifting block. SHims are meant to decrease the angle of your drive shaft. Fat end faces the rear of the truck

Sounds like a shim but it 1" tall. I think it is a block and shim all in one. Fat part to the rear. Got it. Anyone else?
Just making sure before I instal u bolts. Thanks!

if it is in fact a block/shim, then yes, fat end goes to the back of the truck
