Question Ride height question

I have a job 1 '08 f250 with a 1.5" lift up front and F350 blocks in the back. From driveway to center of wheel well measures 42 1/4 front and 42 3/4 back. Does that seam a little low. Also if I get a 3.5" lift I'll have to stack blocks in the back to get it higher than the front?

most any 3.5" kit will come with a 5" block to replace what you have now.. i just did a 3.5" Leveling kit.. 5" Blck in the rear.. and i need a 6" block to bring it back up to even.. my rear is a tad low..

I will need more than a 5" I think, if I just got a 2.5" level kit and a 5" black I would be ok but I want at least a 3.5"

truck looks good! I would probably go with 35's and it would drive me nuts to have the back lower than the front.

i hear ya.. its driving me nuts right now.. so i'm thinking a 6" block is in the works.. or keeping the 5" block and getting an add-a-leaf for the rear.. either one should do the trick
