With a 2.5 leveling spacers how much rear block do I need?

Looking a buying a leveling kit from somebody. It's the rubber style that goes on top of spring. He has 4" blocks with it and said it was on a f350 and was level. Will it make my 2011 f250 level or rear high

rear low

f250 has a factory 2" rear block
f350 has a factory 4" rear block

that assuming he measured it and it was exactly level or eye balled it(be within 2")

just measure from ground to fender lip on your truck and subtract the front from the rear, my 02 f250 is 2" difference from the factory,

since the 11 are coil spring, measure the spacers, they are a 1:1 lift, so a 2" spacer will net 2" of lift on the front

edit*

just saw yours was a 11, not a 05 like the sig, so the rear blocks may not follow that generation

You need an f350 block to sit level. Also you need to get an adjustable track bar and new shocks.

Yes, that combination will get u pretty close to a 2" lift, and sit level, but as mentioned, you'll need shocks, and adjustable track bar, or drop track bar bracket.

I just put 2 inch kit on the front of my 2013 f350 and it sits level to me. I'm thinking about changing my f350 block to a 4.5 top gunz block. Should give me about 3/4 of a inch more in the rear.

I just put a carli 2.5" leveling kit in the front of my 2011 250 and then a readylift 4" block in the rear. It has a very slight rake to it (front lower than rear) and it was exactly what I was looking to do. I am also installing a wireless ride rite airbag system in the rear this next weekend

I parked mine beside a new f350 at the dealer and the rear is lower than the new f350. I guess I have one of the lower sitting f350 in the rear.

It won't hurt to add the machined 1" spacer as long as it has it's own stud and hole for the spring pack bolt.

You don't want to stack 2" + blocks.
