First, torque spins tires not HP. More info will be needed on that aspect, like what rear end ratio you have, oversized tires or not? I don't know what the TPS readings should be. I will say that...

There are no blocks on a 2wd. I have an 08 F150 2wd and just installed a leveling kit and 1.5" rear blocks. At least on my truck the leaf sat on the axle with no blocks.
