level

I just put a 2.5" leveling kit on my F250 and put some 35 's on it. No problems no rubbing or anything, but it looks like its higher in the front now. I measured from the ground to the top of the wheel well and the front is about and inch or so higher, you can really notice Take a look at my picture im my Garage, the really dirty side view one. I also measured my rear block and its like 1 3/4". I just measured the block and not the peice that in connected to the axle, hopefully you know what im talking about. I dont know if some trucks come with a bigger block, could i get one and use the same u bolts, since it only needs one inch there is like 1 3/4" or so of thread sticking up on the u-bolts. Do they make a 3" block?

What type of lift do you have? You can call Explorer Pro-Comp and they will sell you blocks seperate. I think they have 1",2" & 3". Hope this and they can help you..

* * *ALWAYS USE DIFFERENT U-BOLTS!!!!* * *
Also, if you're going to buy anything for the rear I recommend buying a 2" or 3" spring lift Leaf spring and that way you can eliminate the block in the rear all together... which is better.

OR

You could get the stock 4" block from an F350, might want to check people that have lifted their 1tons since they'll probably give them away cheap. Definately do NOT stack blocks.

I had a buddy order them straight from Explorer Pro-Comp over the phone and I think they were like have that price and they are made from a company that does this everyday, not a middle man.

just one more thing to think about, most lifts will settle some, especially with a heavy diesel in the front.
before you go and lift the back you might want to wait a little while and put some miles on your truck, it is not unusual to see the front settle an inch over the first couple months.
