Rear blocks for a "leveled" F250

a buddy of mine has a 2011 6.7 crew cab short wheel base 4x4 it looks like the previous owner put a 2.5" leveling block up front on top of the spring, but did nothing to the rear and it looks like it sags ***. What would be the best setup of blocks and u bolts for the rear to level it out? what height block should we use? will the factory shocks have to be changed out or will they still work with the new blocks. Also how hard is it to swap these out? I have a 350 and didnt have to touch the rear.

You need to get either factory F350 blocks which are a little under 4" or just order a ready lift 4" block and ubolt kit.

will the factory 250 shocks work with these 4" blocks? or do you need new ones?

They should work because the factory F250 and F350 shocks are the same part number

I used the 4" Readylift kit on my 2011 and it looks great. Installation was pretty easy with the help of my 9 yr. old son. You just need extra tall jack stands, and an impact driver came in handy.

Is this what I want? IT says 5" which seem like it would be too much without the front level kit. I just want to have the rake of a 350. Free shipping to USA and Canada for ReadyLift 66-2015 Suspension Rear Block and U-Bolt Leveling Kit 5" | TDot Performance

No 5" is too much. You want a 4" block

if you have the long bed does the driveshaft have to be shimmed?

I just came across this:

TSB 13-03-08 – 2011 – 2013 F-250 Super Duty 4X4 – Rear Of Vehicle Sits Lower Than Expected Under Light Loads
Some 2011 – 2013 F-250 Super Duty 4X4 vehicles may exhibit a customer concern of lower than expected rear
suspension height under light loads. Follow the service procedure in this TSB to correct the concern by adding a 10
cm (4”) spacer block, along with additional components.
