Duffie I'll be installing my Newton kit next weekend. Its been shipped and on the way , My truck is also an 08 F-350. I'm not planning on changing the rear blocks because they are 4" from the factory ( 3 5/8" ) I think. Good luck !!!

so i when i was installing the rear u bolts and new 4" block i noticed that the new nut for the ubolt is longer than the old nuts, so the threads are only 3/4 of the way through the nut is this right? and the new u bolts are the same length and the stock ones? im confused??

I assume your using the factory U-Bolts ? Sounds like you may need longer ones. How did you make out on your track bar bracket spacers ?

I would look into getting longer u-bolts. Your, your family, and everyone on the road's safety isn't worth doing it 1/2 a$$.
Thats weird usually they sent long u-bolts and then you trim them
