2001 leveling kit

hey guys, I have 01 F350 SRW CCLB 4x4, it is time for tires and I want to level it before I buy tires, is there anything out there that I can just the block the front, or do I have to buy a kit, such as add-a-leaf with trac bar. I would appreciate any input, thanks........

I added 2'' on mine, and just used a cheap ol' daystar block. Of course you'll need to 1 up your shocks, but you can also lift by adding a leaf. (daystar 2'' block kit cost $30) did both sides in about 1.5 hours, from tires off the ground, to driving away.

I didn't think you could do the blocks on the front of a straight axle 4x4?
Please explain.....

Youre not supposed to use blocks on the front. You also run the risk of getting you rig impounded for crap like that in most states iirc its illegal, and dangerous

Do it right and get a leveling kit. Add a leafs will make your ride a little stiff but it is way better than putting a block in the front

The truck in the sig pic is running 35"s on a 2.5" rough country leveling kit.

I used a mini spring pack and got about 2-2.5" leveled in the front, keeps the factory ride quality and no new shocks required. I did add an adjustable aftermarket track bar however some have done without it. Leveled my 350 perfect.
