2.5" Leveling kit for F-250 with FX4 package

Can I put a 2.5" leveling kit on a 2005 F-250 with the FX4 package? The one I was looking at has the 2.5" spacers up front and 1" blocks in the rear. I looked at my rear upbolts and they look long enough for the blocks but I noticed it looks like it has already been blocked up a little in the back. I am assuming that was part of the FX4 package so did't know if that would be a problem adding this lift to it?

You can always go up, I would get taller blocks not add a block.
You will need a adj track bar to recenter the axle as it will shift, 1/2-3/4" every 2" of lift..Its Geometry

I put the Dystar leveling kit on my 06 king ranch fx4 4x4 which leveled the front, you will need new shocks on the front as the factory don't extend long enough. Your other option for the rear is a 1" ruff country 81250 add a leaf. the 81250 is the part number and the u-bolts are long enough.
