350 blocks with a leveling kit

im planning on doing a 2.5 inch leveling kit in the spring and i found a good deal on some 350 blocks. If i do the 2.5 leveling kit on the front and the 350 blocks in the rear, will the truck sit level? How much lift will the 350 blocks give the rear of the truck over stock? What is a good 2.5 leveling kit for the front of an 03? Im thinking i need some new leafs bc since i put my bumper on the front end has really started sagging and i have an annoying DONK from the front drivers side and i cant find it for the life of me.

If anyone has pics of their truck with this set up i would greatly appreciate some pics.

Thanks
Jarret

It should sit level with the F-350 blocks.

F-350 blocks are approx 1 5/8" taller than the F-250 blocks.


A nice setup that uses replacment leafs would be the BDS 2.5":

I was hoping you would see this post.
Do you think that it could be the leafs that are making the DONK noise? Could i get by with a hanger kit? If i need new leafs then ill just get them, but if i dont need them then i dont want to spend the extra money.

The truck has new ball joints, new drag link, and new sway bar end links. What could be making that noise....

yes it will sit perfectly level, Ill post up a pic of my 99 with a 2.5" leveling kit and f350 blocks with a set of 36x13.50x20 irok radials...yeah 36s....they rubbed but with taking the right cutting points....NO SHEETMETAL they fit perfect..and looked great, got alot of compliments...




I personally would go back to stock bumper....Ive heard bad things about those heavy bumpers wearing things alot quicker....plus it looks better with a lift kit.

I used a 2.5" bds hanger/shackle combo on mine and f350 block...the block gave it 1.5" over stock.

hey choupique, take my advise ride in some ones truck with a leving kit before you buy one for yours. I have the exact truck same color and all as you but with a 6.0 and i did a leveling kit with 350 blocks in the back, ran some 18 with 35's, looked real good but rode like shat! Everytime i hit a bad spot on road I would almost lose control of my truck, I even switched to stock wheels with 285's and it didnt help?? I would suggest Spending the extra and doing the shackle instead of springs, but if you want I will sell you my 2.5" leveling springs for $150.00
