Default axel blocks?

I we recently bought 3 inch axle blocks for the rear of my truck. But upon looking under my truck I noticed that there is already a block between the axle end the leaf.... wondering if there is a factory block, and if so do I just put the 3 inch lift block on top of it?????

yes that is most likely your stock blocks under there already and no, do not stack the blocks. take the stock ones out and replace them with the new ones.

i would not stack blocks. if you want to add lift safely to what you have now get a set of lift shackles.
