Rear lift advice

I'm wanting to add about a inch to my f350 in the rear. Would I be ok to add a 1 inch block on top of the stock block or should I order a 4.5 inch block from top gunz customs? I'm going to be deleting soon and don't wanna have a lot of axle wrap.

I think most would agree that stacking blocks is not a good idea. If u go with a 4.5" block, u may want to add some traction bars to reduce the axle wrap.
Personally, I prefer to stay with a 4" or less block. Any more lift, I like to go with leaves.

The stock f350 block is 3 5/8 so a 4 inch wouldn't make that much of a difference. You talking about a new set of leaf springs or adding a add a leaf?

Going from a factory F350 block to a 4.5" block will give u close to 3/4" lift. The factory F350 blocks I have measure close to 3.75".

What about add a leafs. Wod they be better than the 4.5 blocks? I might as well go with springs if I'm should buy traction bars. Prob would be around same price.

If you really want to keep ride quality, go up a bit, prevent axle wrap as best as you can, then get a set a Deaver leafs. The smaller the lift blocks the less you'll have wrap.
