    replace the block in the back with one an inch smaller. this will also help cut down on axel wrap you may be getting from it.

    Just push her down an inch... kick the legs out if unwilling.

    But yea... just.... shorten the blocks. Also if you just installed, I'd try throwing a heavy load in the back for a few days and let it settle first.

    Did you just install this lift?

    What exactly do you have in the rear to give you 6"??
    Is it an AAL plus a block?
    Is it a full leaf pak plus a block?
    God, I hope they didn't give you a 6" block....:rolleyes:
    Leaf pak without a block?

    If you just installed the lift and you have an AAL in there or new springs....I would highly recommend putting Sandbags (extra weight - like 200lbs) in the bed and drive it around for a month. With the weight in the bed....it'll help settle the springs/AAL and it might give you exactly what you want after it settles.
