I had asked this question within a previous post on leveling, but as that one dealt with leveling systems, it was out of place.  For the present, I am using blocks to level.  I have always felt more comfortable putting blocks under both of the dual wheels but have seen others do it by just blocking the outer wheel.  Which is the best way to do it?

Blocks under both tires.  If placed just under one tire it will place a lot more stress on the one tire than it was designed for.

NYAAAA.  Wrong answer.    Grin Grin

Block whatever is convenient to block.  The static load sitting on a block is a fraction of the dynamic load that tire faces going down the road.  Worrying about blocking is a waste of good worrying time IMHO.
