Measure them don't go by a picture take at a angle from 6' away.

chevsuz12 yes it's me what are the odds of that! I did call and they told me that the 2wd kits dont come with them. I've been doing research frantically online trying to find anything on 2wd and the need for driveshaft spacers, but haven't found anything. Here's some pictures to help hopefully. I'm really hoping I'm just an idiot and they're on backwards, because I cant for the lift of me figure it out. The first picture is just zoomed in on the last one to try and give you a better idea of the lift block placement.

I put the RC 4" on my 2wd several years ago. No issues at all but I do this kind of thing for a living. Everything you need is included in the kit, ya just have to orient it properly.

P.S. To minimize confusion in the future. Post in one (1) thread instead of cross posting in other sections of the forum relating to the same concern.

I do notice something is missing in your pictures! If you look at your lift block, there are additional holes on the outer edges. You should have installed the smaller u-bolts that came with your kit in these holes. Go back and look at my youtube video.
look closely at the lift block and you will notice how you are missing the smaller u-bolts. I do not know if this will resolve your issue, but it should help.

Video didn't show when I initially replied. Now I know. Don't know what to think of it though. Thinking the better way would be rearching the springs if I was gonna go that high. Just my opinion.

Bringing the truck in tomorrow but I think I found the problem today while washing the truck. What on earth is causing this and how do I fix it? Would backwards blocks cause this to happen?

Yes it did it to mine, That's how I discovered they were backwards, because transfer case was leaking and I had a vibration
