ROugh C0untry 3" with 2" Leveling kit?

So I have a 3" Rough Country lift kit and it looks good.. I was wondering if I would be able to add the leveling kit on top of that to gain an extra 2 inches. If I can what size block or spring would i need in the back? As of right now I have the overload springs from the factory the back.

Thanks guys

I have an '08 SD but I would imagine that they will look the same with the lift. I will try and snap some pics this week. Check this link out http://www.powerstroke.org/forum/sus...es-wheels.html

Well I finally got the RC lift and the 35" Grapplers on.. I like the look of it. I will be tinting all the back windows 5% and the front 20% when I go to Calgary. Speaking of which does anyone know a good spot in Calgary to get tinting done?

The biggest problem I see in stacking leveling kits/lifts is that it throws the caster angles so far out that without relocation brackets for the trailing arms you'll never make the truck drive properly(bump steer/wandering etc)

08 F350 Lariat SWB 4x4
Spartan tunes (120 & 210)
Pro Flo DPF/cat delete 4" syst/with muffler
AFE stage II intake
2 1/2" leveling kit/Icon adj track rod
Rancho 9000 shocks
Autopage alarm/remote start
Clarion MAX675VDII/800 watt amp and 10" sub
SS black chrome side vent screens
MotoMetal 951's with Toyo 325/60R20 A/T's
Bushwacker flares/painted to match trim
Harley grille
More to come(cause I can't ever leave well enough alone)
