f250 leveling kits

I want to put a leveling kit in my truck along with f350 rear blocks. Do i need to get longer shocks or will the stockers work with the leveling kit? What kits do you guys recommend? Also where do i find the f350 rear blocks?

you can get the rear blocks from ford. maybe search online for some a little cheaper ( i think they are around 75 to 80 bucks at ford). for shocks i would definently recommend replacing them (bilstein 5100's). i would look at getting a kit that replaces front springs with some promise of better riding. i put the mini leaf pack from tuff country & it rides pretty rough. good luck

Im ordering the rough country 2.5" leveling kit with new springs shocks and trac bar + hardware, its a pretty good price i think. There are also hanger kits that will retain the stock leafs if you want to keep the factory ride. I personally think the front end feels a little to soft so thats why im getting new leafs.

You might want to read the post about RC spring's saging..

Other option for you are X code ford springs..

For the rear blocks, you might check a local offroad shop. They might have some takeoffs. I got mine that way. Set me back $40 with hardware. Now, I just with my fuel mileage would go back up.

Good news but maybe they changed suppliers as they are have been known for years for being not the best when it comes to ride, saging etc..seen many many posts and personaly had a few customers had problems

Other option is mini spring packs..Icons or Deavers..we have both but your limited to max 2.5" lift..but they allow stock length front shocks. Won't improve the ride quality as you don't get additional travel like you would with hangers or X codes.

Also add-a-leafs..not what I would use but they are a little cheaper than the other options.
