Those with lifted F250's, do me a favor

I recently had a 4.5 RC lift put on my 08 F250. I run 35's. The front is certainly higher in the front but it sure looks like the front is a 6" raise.

I'm at both sides measured from center tire to push pin in molding center.

Front, tire-to-fender is 12.5"

Rear, tire to fender is 11"

Ground to fender edge front 46.25"
Ground to fender edge rear 45"


if you guys with 6" and maybe some with 4 or 4.5" lifts get me some measurements that would be great.

I don't mind it but it just looks tall to me for a 4.5"

I'm assuming I need some 1" higher blocks in the rear?

I got the boxes they came with the lift but the numbers on the box for the springs correlate to the 6" gas engine F250, which might very well be a 4.5" Diesel spring. I don't know so I ask.

I think its a ford thing. Mine looked off too and rough country sent me a free add a leaf. 6.4 hoods are taller than their beds as well so the slightest difference looks even bigger. If you have a local spring shop have them make you a leaf for the rear its better than any add a leaf you can order. I broke the passengers side add a leaf twice and they made me a much stronger one.

For some reason I think the block in the rear is a 3"? I guess I need a 4" or is the F350 version for this kit the right size?

I'm also concerned with the carrier bearing, this thing does not have any vibration in its current set-ip with the bearing drop, when accelerating. I certainly don't want to bring that into the mix.
