find smaller blocks for the leafs in the back, if its a 350 put 250 springs in it, they are an inch lower

thatd definitely be the easiest way to go, however if you like the level look you could also level out the front with an add a leaf kit

What kind of truck? It's looks like you have a 450 or 550 from looking at your avator.

The easiest way would be for you to send me your blocks and I can send you mine. Just like the rest of the guys said. F350 blocks are an inch higher than F250 blocks. Easy swap.
PM me if you would like to swap.

How hard is it to take a leaf out of the front pack? My f250 has 3 and everyone else that I notice with stock suspension has 2.

Sounds like you have an add a leaf in your front spring packs, to raise the front end of the truck to sit level with the rear....chances are the previous owner did this ( if you arent the original owner) if you were looking to lower the front itd be a lot easier to just add a 1 inch block to the rear.

I don't mean to derail this thread, but I was looking to lower the entire truck. I just wandered if I could pull a leaf out front and back and how hard it would be.
