If you don't use air bags in the back to keep it from sagging I would probably put a 2" block in to keep it from sagging in the rear when towing. That is my personal opinion.

I don't like when trucks sag from doing what they are supposed to do.

TOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



P.S. Honest opinion from a guy who works on a cattle ranch (for what it's worth)...

If all you did is level it. I would just kick it up a couple inches, somehow. Airbags are similar in expense atleast in my truck, to adding springs and is adjustable for ride comfort when not towing. So, it's kind of a bonus.

If you have a f250 it already has a 2" factory block to be level you will need a 4" that should put you real close maybe a 1/2" higher in the rear.

I did the 2 1/2 level kit on my 08 f250 and I removed the stock block. I put in a 4" block in the rear and it sits pritty level.

yes to do a leveling kit on a 3/4 ton you need to put the 1 ton block in the rear to make it sit level.

The Icon leveling system is 2.5" in the front with 4" rear blocks. I had a custom setup with 2.5" spacers up front and 3.25" rear blocks. The stance was perfect in my opinion. To the eye it looked perfectly level.

Stock rear blocks on an F-250 are like 1 7/8", so you pretty much be adding 2.5" to the front and nothing to the rear with a 2" block.
