lift questions

ok so i just bought a 99 f250 7.3 this week and it has a 6 inch lift on it. Front springs dont look right and rear is blocked Up with another block under factory block. also has ladder bars and the brackets where mounts to frame are broke. i have 35s now and like that size but really dont like the idea of that tall of blocks in the rear. any ideas what i should do? start over with new lift? or try to find different stuff i need to fix this one? i just dont have too much money to blow any suggestions appericiated

If your fine with it up front then you could just buy new rear springs and ubolts. Or do traction blocks in the rear to help with axle wrap.

just get a single block for the rear... or you could do traction blocks for the rear...

thats the problem with mine the rear blocks are shifted and the front just dont look right its like they have put differnt lift springs off a different truck. im thinkin im just gonna start looking for a used 4" lift complete.

Best to sell your complete kit and start fresh, best riding kit will be a 4.5" hanger kit and stock V and B codes..PM if I can help.
