4.5" rough country lift ???

I installed my lift finally but I'm pretty sure they sent me the wrong U bolts for the rear. Is anyone else running this lift with 35"s?
I had to remove the factory blocks in order to get it to work. The back sits noticeably lower then the front. If this is how it's supposed to be I'm going to find some longer u bolts so I can put those blocks back in to level it out.

I have it also. My ubolts were just barely long enough to get all the threads through

With the factory block? I tried and it was about an inch or two short.

Yeah that's with both blocks. I think they sent you the wrong ones.

Wouldn't surprise me. The didn't send me the blocks the first time and I had to wait around for those to show up. Looks like I'll be calling their customer support.

I got the ReadyLift 3.5"/1.0"...the F350 already has a bigger block on the rear (4")...compared to the F250.

The ReadyLift comes with a 5" block to raise the rear a bit so there's no sag and a bit of rake. Did your lift come with a rear block? If my rear sagged I'd get the 5" block and long u-bolts. The pic on this thread shows the rake. Lift / Level, Tires, Plasti-Dip
