2012 250 Leveling Spacer

What size spacer do i need to level the front of a 250? 1", 2" or 2.5"? I want to do this without adding blocks in the rear and spending 2k on a full blown lift.

There are 3 sizes to choose from, dont know what I need because I dont have the truck yet!

Many thanks,

An F250 with a 2.5" leveling kit will have some Cali Lean. (NOSE UP IN THE AIR) I say maybe a 1.5 will put you level with the rear.

An F350 with a 2.5" leveling kit will put you even with the rear. I have also noticed that since the F350 sits higher from the factory, Adding a 2.5" leveling kit puts you right around the same height as a F250 with a 4" lift.

Not completely true. The F350 is 1" taller in the rear do to a 1" taller block. When you lift a F250 2.5" you need to change the rear blocks to 4" - 5". Where with the F350 most will leave the stock 3.5" rear blocks on. This give the F250 .5" to 1.5" over the F350. If you change the rear blocks on a F350 they would be the same. If your were to put a 4" lift on a F250 or F350 they would be the same.

To the OP: Go with 1" or 2.5" with 4" rear blocks. 2.5" would be the best. That said don't forget the track bar. If you lift your truck your wheels will shift to the left .5" for each 1" of lift. To get your wheels back in track an adjustable track bar is needed.

Any opinions of the ready lift stage 2 leveling kit? This includes track bar relocation bracket.

IIRC, the 350 blocks I put on my 250 were 1 3/4" taller? I have a 2.5 kit for the front, just have not put it on yet.

Well, your current rear blocks are 2" tall, so it's gonna set roughly 1 1/2" taller in the rear with some major rake.

Well I run 2.5" in the front and 4" blocks in the rear. And my truck sits dead level. Sounds like you'll be 2" higher in the rear.

Do you need different shocks when you add the readylift blocks to the rear of a 250?

Your truck looks awesome by the way, got any more pics?
