Default Axel rap

I installed a 2inch block on the back of my tahoe this weekend. Now i belive there is a ton of acel rap. I have never that this or felt it on anyother vehicle so im not totally shur. But i can feel the body almost squating down in the right rear when i get on the gas. Does this sound like axel rap or another problem. And if it does sound like it does anyone no of a way to take care of it? thanks

Tahoes have a soft suspension for comfort, usually. Blocks are going to cause axle wrap, as you found out.

To cure, you'd need to either build a traction bar, or swap out the blocks for add a leafs or new rear springs.

I thought this was about a new gangsta song.

Sure sounds like axle wrap.

Get rid of the blocks for some lift springs.
