6.4L Blocks or Add-A-Leafs HELP

Ok im goin nuts tryin to figure this out and I know pro's and con's of both but perhaps some words from everyone else will help me decide. I've had both in my trucks over the years both have never done me wrong. I do tow somewhat often. Not always a real heavy load but enough to make this 250 sag and its piss'n me off. Level stock may look good but its to street looking for me. I'll work on rims tires next season that say more truck. Also a place you suggest to buy from.

2" Add a Leaf's

OR

4" blocks ( I think thats all I need to replace stock right)

Thanks

Do you want it level when not towing or azzz high?


Are you just not liking the sag when loaded?

If you want it up all the time I would add 1" of block...not stack..but get a 1" taller block...AALs ride like pooop...

If you like it level, but hate the loaded sag...get bags..you can do it for less than $400 with the air-lift 5000 and the compressor....I jsut bought this and plan to install it next week...I have lowered my truck and its level..but I know it will sag when I hook anything to it.

Well I don't like this perfect level stuff.so yeai want it up a higher all the time with enough room so my heaviest trailer makes it still not sag. I will be honest. I bought a truck not a toy or a Cadillac. I don't mean I like a wagon ride but with an add a leaf your looking at basically a stock f-350 no? I have had aal's in the past an yea it's stiffer but....it's a truck!

I am thinking blocks and airbags. Blocks will be nice so it's not lower in rear and for the heavy loads just air them up so it's still sits higher. The height of my hitch now is already a straight hitch and my low trailers empty and low in front. So perhaps blocksalthough more money the stock 250 suspension is just about all I need. I just hate the truck level now it's a dirtbike in the back from being low

I agree... I miss the way the old trucks had a rake to them. My next mod is going to be adding the F350 blocks to my truck.

Mines a TRUCK!! too but I like it to look good while working...anyhow...


No AALs wont be like a F350 it will ride like a tank...an F350 has basically the same rear leaf pack but with a 2" taller block.

Get some 4" blocks....take out your stockers and you will have your look you want...very simple modification.
