F350 Springs and Blocks

I have a 250 and i have some F350 rear springs in my garage and wanted to get the F350 rear blocks also to give the rear alittle higher lift. My question is that if i put the 350 springs and blocks on will i have to shim my drive shaft or anything like that? Or will i just be able to put them on and be done? Is there anything else that goes along with putting them on. I know a couple guys have done this for the extra lift and hauling.

Let me know what you guys think

Thanks
Steve

you wont significantly raise it enough to cause any problems, the leaf springs, will set it at the right angle. make sure you use new u bolts when you swap it tho.

When you replace the rear springs will it ride a little smoother? I have a d60 that I will be installing as soon as the weather gets a little warmer - would it be a good idea to replace the rear springs as well?

Where did you find rear 350 springs and what do they usaully run $$?

You would think the F-350 springs would be a little stiffer,although my F-350 dually rides as good as any 150.
