not sure on the company you listed(not showing), but the problem may not be the add a leaf/blocks.


but you may be snapping the leafs because of axle wrap(common on lifted super-duties),
i would invest in airbags/ traction bars


i hear with a lift(especially 8") and towing is asking for a ton of axle wrap,

here is what axle wrap is


and how traction bars help it

with that large of a lift and the amount of torque our trucks pull i suggest getting some traction bars... also remember the larger the curve on the spring means that it wont hold as much weight so if your going to tow i suggest PMF's traction block setup....

If I do the pmf traction bar setup that doesn't help me with my springs, I took the add a leafs out so I'm un level, I found oem 350 springs for 175$, are you saying erasing the blocks and goin all spring is bad?

You should do some research on this or other forums, powerstroke nation , powerstroke army, diesel stop etc... and definately buy or build some traction bars. I had 8"BDS lift on my excursion and if it didn't have the traction bars it would have been rough..definately no pulls. By the way you are posting in the Excursion section , you may hvae better luck in the general 6.0L , 6,0L suspension drive line section, or the performance 6.0L section...
Good Luck,
Deo
