Your truck should have a factory 2" block already and I am strongly against "stacking" blocks for more lift, they have a bad tendency of spiting out when the suspension cycles and I don't have to say how dangerous that is!! You would be better off going with an add a leaf in the rear also.

you can get brand new blocks and u-bolts from ford if you'd like, if not just buy 4 inch blocks from any online store, I have a 250, and my buddy has a 350, he wanted his lower and I wanted mine higher so I took his 4" and he took my 2" blocks n u-bolts.

Stack blocks=not cool. I knew this and still did it for a while till i spit a block out on the highway. It seemed like a cheap temporary fix to fit my 39.5s. For almost the price of blocks and U-bolts you can do it stronger and safer by either buying a shackle flip kit or if you have the resources, make one. Its a little work but its worth it imo. Just a suggestion. Of course the best way to lift is with springs. I just used the measurements from my truck and pictures from this site to make mine. There are some other interesting things on this site too.

i know about the rsk out there but i could not imagine the cost of shipping up here to canada. i don't want to stack blocks i thought the 350 just had taller ones and i would just replace them. if i put more springs in the rear would it be a rougher ride? What are the dimensions on the factory blocks?

f-350 blocks are 4 inches, f-250 blocks are 2 inches, just swamp the blocks, you do not have to stack anything

thanks

Cool Blocks

What I have done is go to our local tire a wheel store and talk to the shop guys. When they do lifts, they throw the old blocks and U-bolts in a scrap bin out side. They give them to me. Hey, go make a new friend. I have stacked blocks and have only had wheel hop problems. If you do, weld the blocks together then carefully torque and retorque the U-bolts.

The Ex -box. Total RSD system. See what happens when you let attorneys run your Country!!!! There's nothing wrong with a Democratic society, we just need to get rid of Democrats. 2001 Excursion. 2003 Cobra Terminator all pumped up. Now this is fuuuuuun.
