If you want to drop the rear you can remove the 4" blocks and install the 2" F250 blocks you may have to take it in and have the driveline checked. A lot of guys have done this to pull a 5er to get the bed rail clearance of 6"
2 stroker

By your pic in your avitar it looks like a 2wd? If so if you remove some springs you will loose your load rating and it will squat pretty good, unless you add air bags. As long as you have room for the shackles I think that would work.

FYI. The F350 DRW come with the same blocks as the F250. Atleast mine and the others I have seen do. I had to buy the F350 SRW blocks to raise mine up to match my icon 2.5 lift.

And to the OP you should have a 2 in block between your axle housing and rear spring if its a 4wd. If its a 2wd Im not sure. sorry

Reading this post over made me go outside and take a second look,the only thing under my leaf springs is a spring purch its only 1 3/4 inches thick.There is no blocks under my springs! My bosses truck is a FX4 off road and his has about a 4 inch block under the leaf springs ! My truck is a 04 F350 4X2 6.0 Powertroke !! Not being a smart a$$ or anything but after read the other post I thought I was going crazy for a moment ! I will send some pics of the differances that I see between the two !Thanks for all the replyes!!!
