Anyone just going with a leveling kit?

Im lookin at just putting a leveling kit in the front and leaving the back alone. Im not much for a lift and really prefer the leveled look. Anyone out there just running a leveling kit?

Many guys with F350s only do the leveling kit in the front. They already have a taller block in the rear than the 250s. With most of the leveling kits on the market you may not like the stance if you have a 250 and only level the front. Especially if you load the rear end up much. I have a leveling kit ready to go for my 08 F250 and i will be raising the rear also.

on a F250 if you dont raise the rear, than the truck will sit high in the front by about 1.5 inches. On a F350 it will sit perfectly level. If you have a F250 I would just look for a set of stock used F350 blocks in the for sale section or hit up your local junk yard for a wrecked F350. That would be the cheapest way to do the rear end.

I have the Ready Lift Leveling kit. Like the way it looks so much better. I put it on myself in the garage. Was easy to do. Very simple kit.

your 250 has a 2 inch block in it already, and a F350 has a 4 inch block. You can add a 2 inch block to the rear or just find a used take off F350 block and you will be set.

Unfortunately I don't have any on this computer and sitting in Northern Iraq currently has me way to far away to get any at the moment. I will see if my son can get some and send them to me. 9 hour time difference makes it hard to get a hold of the guy though. And just leveled no block.
