WHERE DO I GET 3 INCH BLOCKS!!!!

Ok guys Ive been having a hell of a time locating 3 inch blocks for 06 f250 4x4


I called the parts guy at ford and he had 8 different part numbers for these blocks.. I asked for f350 blocks... I gave him the wheelbase of my truck in order to get the right blocks(pinion angle etc)... the wheelbase is 156... He gave me the part number for the f350 blocks based on the wheelbase. He could not tell me if they are the 3 inch blocks though.. He told me that some f350's come with 2 inch blocks.... WTF!!! I just want some damn blocks to level out my truck that is unlevel after my installing my "leveling kit". I have spent all FREAKING day trying to figure this out. The good news is that the 2 inch front leveling kit clears my 35x 12.50's!!!!! HELP ME SOMEONE before I slap some 2x4's underneath as lifting blocks!!

I think the earlier trucks had the 3" blocks and they lowered them shortly after '99. I just remember a guy that bought a 350 and had to have the shorter blocks put in to pull his goose neck. He said they later started coming from the factory lower. IDK?

Have you tried 4wheelparts?

I don't know if they were all like this, but I have a 2000 F350 4x4 Single rear wheel, with extended cab, and short bed. and mine had 3.5" blocks from the factory in the rear. Maybe you can give them that info and see if they still have a bunch of different part numbers to choose from or see if they only have one.

You would think so. You may try a different dealer. A good parts person should be able to hook you up. I run into the same problem at our local dealer. Two guys can get me what ever I need almost before I tell them what it's for. The other guy couldn't find a FL-1A.

Did you figure it out? I'm in the same boat. I have a leveling kit but the front is going to sit higher then the rear. I tow so I want to keep the same rake. I have 2" rear blocks in mine and want 3" or 4".

I know rancho makes a 4" block kit for the rear of these trucks but they want something like $250 for it. I'm in a similar boat with mine....6" lift on the 2wd actually comes with 2" blocks in the rear, so now my front end sits level with a 4wd that has a leveling kit, and the rear end is sagging. It's been hell trying to figure this out. The 4" factory blocks would be ideal.
