Superlift blocks without the stock block??

I'm wondering if it's possible to run the superlift block on the rear, without having to stack it with the stock 1" block. I currently have the stock block with 4" skyjackers and a beltech shackle. I'm sick of how far forward my rear axle is now pushed and I've been told the majority of the problem is from the shackle. So I'd like to see if switching my setup to just the superlift block and 4" skyjackers will improve the axles location.

Thanks for the help.

thanks for the help. I didn't think so. I think I was getting confused with when I was told the skyjacker leafs have to be installed with the block in place so the axle is angled properly or the leaf springs are seated properly or something. But ya I believe the superlift blocks are the same as the stock block as they have that same tapered edge... I'm gonna have to try this out because i'd love to fix the axle position in the rear, ruins the truck imo haha

because the front end is currently lifted approx 4" from superlift, plus an additional 2" from prekey and tbar crank. rear is currently 1.5" block plus 4" springs, plus 2" lift from shackles....

so front is up 6", rear is up 7.. 7 1/2"
if I remove the shackles to center up the axle a bit more, but do nothing else then the back will be too low.. so I need to add the 3" block back in.
