There are no advantages or disadvantages of either really, it's just that the tapered blocks are designed to correct pinion angle. If his pinion angle is fine or if there are factory shims in already just get the standard blocks. Basically shims and/or tapered lift blocks are the easy way to tweak pinion angle without having to cut and reweld the perches back on.

Speaking of lift blocks, have you guys seen how big the blocks are on some of those new Superduty's with like 12" lifts? Man most of those guy's are running like 8" blocks, it's rediculous. I think you're probably fine with a 2 or 3" but 8"?

My dad's dodge 1500 came stock with like 6" worth of blocks. One looks like a standard 3" block for all the trucks, got the bump stop on it, the other I think is from the "sport" package. The u-bolts are huge!
