No, they are probably tapered, and for a 2.5" spring, do not cheap out, run only blocks made for a Superduty!

It's not the tube diameter that you should be worried about when buying blocks, it's the leaf spring width. A tapered block allows for some pinion angle, I can't remember if my OEM blocks were tapered or not, they left about 3~4 yrs ago. I did have some Dodge blocks in once because they were 5" tall.

DO NOT STACK BLOCKS! If you've ever seen a truck spit a block stack, you'll know why. I don't care if that's how the lift mfrs do it, it's very unsafe. Don't be a cheap skate, do it right the first time.

not trying to give unsafe advice.. but i have stacked 4" lift block + f350 block in the rear, i'm running a tapered because my angle was pretty bad.. they work and people do it, but it definitly is the cheap way out

a lot of people run tapered so that the pinion angle is reduced

Not trying to cheap out here guys, just didn't know if that's what I needed. I only need about 2-3 inches, any blocks you guys recommend?

look up something designed for 2-3" of lift for the truck, like the readylift rear lift blocks.... those will replace the stock block and give you the extra lift, and is designed for the truck, and they're about as cheap as you can get
