Hello all, I have a 2002 Durango RT that I was going to install a set of 2" shackles and do the torsion lift, when I looked at the rear leafs and axle I noticed what appears to be lift blocks. The truck doesn't seem to sit higher than other Durango 4x4s that I've seen. I was wondering if anyone had any insight if this is a stock or aftermarket setup, and if I can even do the TS lift. Thank you very much for any help.

Here is a side view, I have stock 275/60/17s on it. I had a 2000 RT years ago, but it already had a TS lift on it, and definitely sat higher, I honestly don't remember seeing any blocks on it though. Thank you for any input.

Not sure about Durango but blocks on a Dakota will lower it. Blocks are installed between springs and axle. Springs are below the axle on Dakota.

Thank you for the response, the block sits between my leafs and axle, my roommate has a Dakota RT and his rear is exact to mine minus the block, and we sit at almost an identical height from ground to fender. I just didn't want to add the shackle to it in case that'd be too much lift, if it is not a factory block then I guess it's already lifted

The block actually lowers the truck by lowering frame as it relates to tires. 1" block lowers 1" etc. Most R/T owners lower their trucks, check out dakotart.com

I know it's 5 years later, but I'm surprised it hasn't been pointed out that the "lift" blocks, as they are shown installed, will do absolutely nothing except stretch out the shocks and reduce clearance near the wheels. Lift blocks only work when the axle is below the leaf springs, unless you are using them to lower the suspension by placing them between the axle and the springs, if the springs are below the axles.
