Front lift blocks?

Some one gave me some front lift blocks that look to be 3-4 " blocks off a 1993 F-350, Would those work on my 2001 F-350 so that it would be level since I have the factory 4" rear blocks?

The only reason I had thought about it is because they came factory on the other F-350. What would you suggest to level the truck with out loosing much, if any ride quality?

There is no such thing as Front Lift blocks.

Check your local state laws, majority of the states have a law prohibiting this. Also it is unsafe, Never use lift blocks in the front end of any truck.

You can do a web search about this and read all the mis haps and people severely injured because they lifted the front end with blocks.


I am not talking about the coil spring spacers, I am talking about the rectangular blocks that are normally used on the rear.

A leveling kit they cost anywhere from 200-400 dollars. There is also shackle lift this gives you 2.5inch lift in the front as well.

I had a K5 Blazer that was lifted when I bought it, it had 8 inch leaf springs, 2 inch blocks in the front and the rear had 3 blocks stacked on top of each other 2 4 inch blocks and one 3 inch block and a 3 inch body lift on top of all that. There is know way that I would ever stack all those blocks together in the rear end, and for a daily driver I wouldn't put blocks in the front end but for a off road truck I never had any problems with mine and I was beating on them with a built 327 with 4.88 gears in the diff's, turning 38inch Boggers and never had a problem.
