Leveling kit

Why is it everyone wants a leveling kit? Ive had a few powerstrokes each may sit down in the front barely if any which I like because helps when pulling something or hauling anything at all. I said all that to say I now have a 2011 ccsb, previous owner has installed a rough country leveling kit and like most ive seen the rear ends are lower. In return makes it terrible squatting pulling my enclosed. Just dont like that kind of stance. Any suggestions how to get actually level or back down in the front a hair if any.

Put f350 blocks in the rear. I think they are around 5" where the f250 is 3ish when using a leveling kit?

A leveling kit is made for an f350 to sit level. If anybody puts a leveling kit on a f250 without lifting the rear is silly.

Exactly how I feel as well and the previous owner did it. Could I not just remove leveling kit? What does it consist of exactly. If oem parts were removed im def gonna have to purchase something

Best cheapest solution is a taller rear block. You can buy them from Ford or almost every vendor on here.

I don't know if you have an F250 or F350. I installed a
ReadyLift 66-2014 4" Rear Block Kit for Ford F250/350 ReadyLift 66-2014 4" Rear Block Kit for Ford F250/350
on a 2013 F250 SuperCab. It consists of 4 inch blocks for the rear and a set of U-bolts and nuts to hold them on. It raised the rear of my truck a little over 2 inches at the rear wheels.

If you have an F350 and suspect that someone installed a leveling kit, look for disk shaped spacers on top of or beneath the front coil springs.

As previously stated, adding 4" blocks to the rear is going to be a quick and easy solution to your problem.

People go with a "leveling kit" so they can run a larger tire. Most go with a 2"-3" kit up front and 4" blocks in the rear if they have an F250. This will allow for a 35" tire to be ran which looks MUCH better than the stock pizza cutters.

I just installed the Carli Suspension leveling kit on my '11 F250....it added 2.5" up front and I changed out the rear spacers (blocks) from the 2" F250 blocks to the 4" F350 blocks....I changed the u-bolts and nuts....send me a message if you need the part numbers....I have them after searching forever and a day....I still have a good rake in the back, which I like....mine is not totally level...but I like that because I don't want shine UFOs with my headlights if hauling something heavy.
