Anyone put rear blocks in w/ a leveling kit?

I put a 2.5" kit up front and now I'm wanting to put in some rear lift blocks to even it out. The front is currently sitting about 1 1/4" higher than the rear. I can't really decide between a 3, 3.5, and 4" block to swap into the rear. Have any of you done this and if so, what size block did you use and do you have pics??

I have 2.5" top gun spacers. I've been trying to get f350 blocks but the stealership wants a sh*tload for them and the bolts. I've been trying to find some on here and other sites but noone has any they'd sell. The issue i'm running into is the 350 blocks are actually 3 5/8" which would be about perfect so the 4" blocks would put the forward rake back in it and i can't find a 3.5" block kit with bolts...

I have the exact same spacers but it only put my front 3/4" higher than the rear. Don't care for the look so I am going to get the 4" blocks to rectify it. Have you seen these?

4" Readylift Block Kit

That should put you back a tad high on the rear, probably not enough to really notice less you look real hard. Not sure how they compare to dealership prices though.

i'm kind of leaning towards the 4" blocks as well. FWIW, I have found 4" block kits that include the u bolts for much less than the readylift blocks. suspension connection has a ton of skyjacker blocks and bolts for under $90

Mine is a leaf truck but i have a 3.5'' kit in the front and it had stock F250 rear, i switched the 2'' block out with a 3'' and it sits perfect. I already had longer u-bolts so i ordered the block from Newtons lift off of ebay. They have rear block up to 6'' by 1/2'' steps, so you could get a 3.5'' or 4''. And then pick up some u-bolts at almost any 4x4 shop.
