9.5" lift.. rear setup??

Here is where I am for my 05 F250....

Front plan - I already have all this stuff:
8" Rize 4-link conversion
1.5" leveling kit (pucks under spring mount)

(total 9.5" lift in the front)

Now for the rear - going to be getting this stuff:
8" Icon rear springs (3-8500)
U-bolt kit
Do I need any additional blocks???

Bilstein 5125 12" travel in front, 14" travel in rear plus eye to stem adapters for front.

My major concern is the rear....what/if any block is needed to get this thing level?
Does anyone have any experience with the ICON springs and actual lift height? OUO trac blocks are not an option (don't want them and alot of ppl are going to push them. I'm sure they are wonderful, but not for me)

Thanks Hotwheels!!!! That is exactly what Iwas looking for..... Now, i wonder if I will need a smaller block for the rear or if 1/2" is really going to be that noticable....

Looking at your sig...says you have a F350 but with F250 blocks???

Yeah, I went with 250 blocks to get it level. You might not even notice an half inch difference.

I have a 9.25" front lift on my 01 and run the Icon 8" rears with a 1.25" block and am dead level front to rear.


With a 9.5" front and the 8" rears and 2" block you'd have a very slight amount of rake to the truck. Just enough to keep it from looking lower in the rear than the front.

Is that with a 2" block along with the factory f250 block? Or axle, 2" block, 8" spring = correct ride height?

Axle-2" block-8" spring.= correct ride height (very slight rake)

4" of block and a 8" spring would be way tall in the rear.
