SkyJacker steering block spacer on Dana 60

ok heres the deal I got a 68 chevy with a dana 60 front and recently went from about 8 inches of lift to 12 inches, when i was at 8 inches i had a drop draglink and pitman. so after i went with 12 inches of lift my steering couldnt connect so I decided to get the skyjacker steering block to raise the arm up higher until i could afford crossover steering. So i put the block on and the little round insert in torqued everything down and now theres a bunch of play in the in between the c's and knuckle. has anyone had this problem? I put the spacer in the steering arm then the spring and washer on the bottom of the spacer. should i switch them around and put the spacer down into the knuckle and leave the spring on top and then torque the arm down? Its hard to explain and there was no instructions with the block. I checked the skyjacker website but theres nothing on there.

I put my spacer on top and I'm ok. try a couple fo flat washers to take up the slack. I'm 290 and really had to lean on it, to get the nuts started.
