Needing to level 02' F350

So I'm about tiered of the sagging front end of my F350 SRW. It looks much worse because it's the 350 and has the taller rear end due to extra/bigger blocks. My question is, there is a lot of tech on how to lever a F250, but not much on the 350's.


There is ~4-4.5" difference in between the front and the rear of the truck approximately.

I would like to get a new leaf pack but don't know ho makes a entire leaf pack and how many inches it would actually level this 350.

Ya, I'll get a measurement tomorrow of my front and rear to see how they compare. Do you have any pictures of yours and how much did the leafs settle.

I did the Zone 2.5" kit with adjustable trac bar, and love it! I had sagging springs too so it brought it up about 3.5 -4". My F-250 was only about 2.5" difference in height so I ended up putting the 4" blocks in rear which made up the 2" two fully level it.

i leveled mine out with shackles, then i didn't like the lack of rake so i added f250 blocks to the rear.

now it doesn't really look lifted, it looks more like a factory high boy

Funny how that works. I remember thinking that about my old truck. 13" of lift and at first it was massive, then slowly over time it looked smaller and smaller until it felt like just a little taller than stock.

Maybe I'm reading that wrong., but I wouldn't feel comfortable stacking blocks.

90% of lifted trucks with an actual lift kit are lifted in the rear with stacked blocks.

It's fine for a street a truck. If I used it off road I would do a shackle flip with new leafs.
