Make a do it yourself add a leaf up front, it will bring it up as many springs as you stick in, or have the stock ones re arched

You don't want to lift a TTB axle without dropping the center support. For a cheep leveling setup, ditch the rear blocks. Probably not the look your going for but for the cost of 4 ubolts it's hard to beat.


Only pic I could find of mine before the D60 and lift. I never measure it but it looked level.

I leveled mine with a solid axle swap and stock f350 springs, but it was like $500, you don't want to use the f350 springs on the f250 axle, they are it designed to twist and may lead to premature failure

I used a Zero Rate add a leaf from Off Road Design. Try to keep the ride as nice as possible. The problem is the alignment afterwards. I used some adjustable camber bushings to get mine within spec. You can also use drop brackets for the axle pivots. All that has be tossed now. Truck has F350 springs and a dana 60. I still have the Zero Rates if your interested.

Add a Leafs, Zero Rate for 4x4 Suspensions from Offroad Design
