2010 - 8" to 10" Rear Lift Modification

I have a 2010 F250 with a Fabtech 8 lift kit installed running 37 tires. The kit uses rear blocks with the factory springs and over load spring. My issue is that I think the rear has a little bit of sag. I also have their traction bar set up installed. Im worried about the axle binding that might take place with the Spartan Tuner installed.

Is it possible to just change out the factory springs and added lift blocks to a 10 new spring? I think that would be a safer set up for traction and raise the rear of the truck. If so do you know all the items I would need to make this happen? I.E. part #s, size of U-bolts, new shocks?

Thanks for the advice.

Kyle

I got a different lift but its an 8 inch block and I added a leaf because it was sagging as well heres a pic of my setup with an 8 inch rouch country bock and their add a leaf to give you an idea of what a bigger block with a leaf would look like. It sits alot better now and is level.

If you've got the money (and it’s a lot) , go for one up offroad or precision metal fab traction blocks. I'm current eyeing a set of the PMF ones hard, just trying to figure out how to explain the expense away.

Yes they do look like a great set up, but I already have new Fabtech traction bars installed. The concern I have is that with all the power that I have it might become an issue with the way the rear blocks are stacked. I would like a one piece solid style or save up for new springs.
