Need help- F350 blocks for Carli lift

I'm about to put a Carli kit on my 250. I see they require the 350 rear blocks. I'm am trying to figure which ones I need to order. Called up the parts department at my local stealer and the guy didn't even know what a rear block was! I had to look up the part and they call it a leaf spring spacer. I gave him the part number for the block and directed him to search under F350 pickup SRW. He is saying there are about 6 different variants depending on the wheelbase.

Can anyone who has put a Carli kit on give me any info as to which rear blocks I need? I appreciate it!

Disregard this post. I emailed Carli and they immediately responded with the correct part. Unbelievable service! Top notch suspension and customer support.

Hey there, does your name have anything to do with Palmetto Moonshine? I was out that way and picked up a case of the white lightning about a month ago. Great place if you do not know about it.

Assuming that your truck is a 2011+ I would suggest upgrading to the full leafs. Because the mini packs for that year are $750 it is only $445 to upgrade to the full leafs. Plus that eliminates the block altogether and saves you close to $200 since you won't need the 350 blocks. That makes the full leaf upgrade about $250.

Looking back that's probably what I should have done. I'm too excited now to wait! Everything is getting installed on Wednesday. I foresee putting in the full leafs in the near future though.
