ProComp lift

hey guys i just bought a used 6'' ProComp lift for my 05 f350. just curious how much it will lift the rear of the truck. will it lift it 6'' so its still raked or will it lift it approx 4'' so it sits level? it is the stage 1 kit with the add a leaf and a 1.5'' block. reason i ask is i just bought a very nice rapid hitch but it only allows for a 5 1/4'' drop. im starting to wonder if i should have gotten the 10''. thanks guys.

I have a pro comp lift for my 03 (completely different front end), but my lift was 6.5" front, 5" rear.

The rear add-a-leaf should add about 1-1/2" by itself.

well so far that only gives me about 3'' lift in the rear. should be atleast 4 i think or the front is going to be higher than the rear, as long as the front is lifted a legit 6''

If that pic is of the lift..Doesn't look anything like a 6" lift..Best option for the rear is do not stack blocks either get a mini spring pack or new springs.

there is no lift on it right now, i just picked it up. i basically want to know how much the add a leaf will lift the rear of the truck. i know the 1.5'' block is going to raise it 1.5'' and i guess the add a leaf will add approx 1.5'' also. if its only going to lift the rear 3'' then ill be fine with the drop hitch i bought, if it lifts it a full 6'' ill need the bigger drop. by the time i get the lift installed it will probably be too late to return the hitch if its to short. i paid 250 for the hitch and dont want to be stuck with it.

I know on the older leaf sprung trucks, the Pro Comp lift wound up lifting the front 6 inches and the back about 4. Depending on how old the lift is, there could be more settling on the front.
