2" vs 2.5"

I like the way my stock 250 sits. I want to do a leveling kit with blocks so I can easily fit 35" tires. Which spacers up front 2" or 2.5" would give me closer to the stock stance with 4" blocks for the back?

Id have to say that if you have a 250, I would go with the 2" block. You go with a 2.5 your front end is gonna be sitting up higher then the rear. at least thats what happened with my lift on my 03. Ended up getting 4" blocks for the rear of the truck

Your best bet is to just measure it from the top of the tire to the top of the fender and go from there. If your adding 1" in the back then add 2" in the front if your 1" high already...etc. There are plenty of options to get the exact look you want.

Its Icons 2 1/2'' lift with the 4'' blocks & shocks. When I did the before & after measurements it was actually 2 1/4'' up front & 2 1/2 in the rear.

I would get the 2.5" kit. I had it on my old f350 and it sat perfect. I bought it from topguncustomz. My truck was a 350 so it already had the taller rear block.

I have the adjustable trac bar. No steering stabs exept the stock one. Truck drives just fine. I do highly recomend the trac bar.
