3" Sky RSK Dilema

Ok, I finally mounted up my Sky 3" RSK today. But.......I'm not happy at the moment. The front sits higher than the rear. Exactly what I didn't want.

I hope that I have a 3" front crossbar, and not 5", but I think I have the correct one.

The front leafs are to be from an OBS F350. Spring code:

0W 4 02
F5TA YA

I also put the 4" F350 blocks in the rear as well, but I need some input.

I had to do an add-a-leaf on the rear of mine with the RSK.

Any place in particular that you got your add-a-leaf from?

And I guess you needed new u-bolts to account for that extra leaf too?

I ordered mine from 4wheelparts. My u-bolts barely fit. The shackle flip may be a good option, also.

I thought about getting this when I ordered my RSK, but I haven't heard much about them, so I didn't. But these are also from Sky.

Wonder if they're worth it?

That looks like a nice piece. How much lift does it add?

I have the rear shackle flip on mine. Very well made. Adds about 4 to 4 1/2 inches.

And with the rear reverse shackle brackets, can you go back to the 2" block?

Ive had them for more than 2 years. My setup is 3"rsk with superduty x codes on the front with 2 inch blocks on the rear. Im am just about level. Whats the height of your front and ill compare it to mine to see if you could do 2s in the back with the flip and be level.

Wait a minute........

Since I am using OBS springs...

Stock F350 = Military wrap in the rear (fixed bracket - shackle in the front)

With the RSK, the fixed position is in the front. Does that mean I should have the military wrap in the front?
