Please identify: is this a stock axle perch / block for my 1985 Waggy?

I'm considering throwing a 1" block on the rear axle to cure my Waggy sag, but I want to make sure it doesn't already have a 'lift block'. I'm used to looking at my CJs and this just doesn't look like a stock perch to me.

Can anyone confirm if this is the stock set up or as it already been altered??

Thanks!

That looks like a degree shim to help with pinion angle

Seems stock with a degree shim to me. And shouldnt there be a thick support leaf - the shorter straight one..?

Otherwise hi from here, Martin

x2 but the perch itself looks cracked off in the front. Definately looks like a stock perch though.

Thanks everyone for the quick responses!

Next question, if I throw a 1" block in, does it go between the perch and the shim or between the shim and the lower leaf?

Sorry for the noob questions. I've never used lift blocks before

Sure looks like that to me also.



Block goes on top of the perch and the shim should be bolted to the spring pack via the center pin.
