ya no biggie i've done it on my last three trucks, you can either get a set of 2" rear blocks from a f250, or napa has them on the shelf, just cut off extra axle u-bolt when done

im doing this so my 5th wheel will ride level.im not removing any leaf springs so i cant see where it would sag. besides this is a F350 with overloads.i could drop my fat ex out of an airplane in to the truck box from 20,000 feet with a sherman tank strapped to her a## and it wouldnt go down an inch.

If I wanted a smart *** remark I would have asked for one. Whatever. There's reasoning to me asking what gains and purpose guess you read over that and came up with a immature answer.

i think he made it pretty clear when he said he wanted to level it out. and then said it again.

i removed the blocks from my 250 and also took my overload springs out. i have since put stuff in the bed and it didnt "sag" much at all. its no 5th wheel but im sure you could just put some 250 blocks back there
