Blocks

Hey guys,
i have an 07 f250 cc sb with a 2.5" leveling kit. I also have a ranchhand bumper on the front so i thought it would even the truck out pretty well, but the front end still sits higher than the rear. I am either going to put 1" blocks in the rear, or try to find some factory f-350 blocks. What is yalls input on this, and how much would f-350 blocks cost me? Also would i need longer U bolts? Thanks in advance

Replacing U-bolts is highly suggested due to the streching of the older ones. What leveling kit are you using?

the f2350 blocks are 3 and 5/8 where as your stock block are 1 and 5/8. Should cost around 120-150 depending on your ford dealer. You just go to your ford delaer and order them. Since you have a crew cab order the flat blocks; you do not need the blocks that have the five degree taper built in.

Most of the kits are blocks and bolts for the rear. On my 06 King Ranch CC Dually I did a 2.5" lift in the front, and wanted to run level when loaded so I did a 4" in the back.... It is new coil pads on the front and that larger sway torsion bar mount, blocks and bigger u-bolts in the back.. And by the way you will need new shocks that extend further.

By the time I added a heavy re-inforced large steel bull bar, and 16.5 Warn Winch, big driving lights and antennae, I thought my coils were a bit weak for the job in heavy going in the Outback of Oz.... So what I did was add a set of Blue Firestone airbags inside the coils. Just a little air pressure, to give them a little firmness.. 25 psi around town, more for more...

All in all the system worked well. But on my new 07 King Ranch, FX4 CC Dually, I am leaving it down. It just got too hard, I could not reach into the bed to get something, my dogs hurt their backs jumping in and out, the dually wheels looked too small in the big dually wheelwell, many disadvantaged just to ride high in pride... I am proud enough with my new King Ranch, and will leave it stock and low....

Hope a help.... Regards for the lone Ranger out on the trail
