Leaf Springs or Block in the back

Im looking to get a 6" lift for my 03 f250 soon, probably fabtech, skyjacker, superlift, or procomp.

Is it alot better ride to go with leaf springs all around instead of 5" Blocks?

Your truck already has blocks in the rear. In some states it is illegal to stack blocks. It will be stronger with springs.

Yup, what they said is all true. But, it kinda depends on what you are going to be using your truck for. If you are going to be hauling a lot of heavy loads, go with blocks. If you are just looking for the "look" and a good ride, I would go with springs. The capacity wont be quite as much I don't think, but you will def get a better ride.

go with the leafs, blocks will increase the leverage on your diff and axle wrap will increase ALOT. especially with 6 inch blocks. if the springs have a lighter load rating you can always add air bags.
