that block kicks out your prety much gona roll I have seen one kick out of the back of a truck before wasn't prety. Save yourself the trouble if you wana go 2-3" just get drop shackles. Blocks in the front when you turn it moves your axle around and block tend to walk out if you put like a piece of 1/2" plate in there I would say ok but anything over that your just askin for it. Drop shackles aint that much compaired to a rolled over pickup. check here.Ford Superduty 99-04 Leveling Kit - Sky's Off-road Design

Both are good the plus side with a shackle kit is you keep the factory ride feel. Normaly with new lift springs they are a little stiffer. But I would go with the cheaper one they would both be good in my opinion.
