Swapping in F350 leafs and blocks on a F250

I have a chance to pick up a set of F350 leafs and blocks for 125. I plan on towing my 28 ft gooseneck alot this summer. My question is this a good idea? I know the blocks are like 2 inchs of lift. And is it just bolt in between the F250 and F350 springs? I was really just wanting the blocks so I could keep that raked look with my new leveling kit. And then the guy was like you want the springs too? Thanks

I was wondering the same thing. My buddy has a 2000 f350 and it is stock but sits about 2-3 inches higher then mine. He also has taller wheels though so that may be where the difference is coming from.

I know for sure the blocks are just shy of two inchs bigger on the 350.

I think the springs are the same on both trucks. The block in a 250 is 2 1/2"- the 350 block is 3 1/2".
