Leveling Kits and 350 blocks?

Have an 06' F250, right now has stock 17" rims and little crappy tires. I just bought the factory 20" rims and am looking to trhow on 35's. Im thinking about putting a 2-2.5" leveling up front and F350 blocks in the rear. Any suggestions where i can get either of these and how much. Thanks

not sure exactly how much you would be paying, theres a huge price range difference in these things. but i am looking to do this exact set up as well and i've been told you're gonna want the solid steel spacers that are meant for the bottom not the top of the coil. and also if you plan on leaving your stock shocks your gonna need shock extenders (30$)

again i know im not a lot of help but i've been trying to do this for a month and everytime i think i'm ready something new pops up. its better to this...this brand is best...you need some of these...this much...

just make sure its well thought out before buying

Do yourself a favor and get Icon 2.5 inch progressive rate springs and decent shocks. I went this route and added Fox remote res shocks (3 inches longer than stock) Huge improvement in ride over spacer and stock shocks

Do your self a favor and get a ready lift 2.5 SST and 4" block from them. The front lift with drop bracket is correct and quite cheap. Their rear 4" blocks are cheaper than the OEM ford ones and they come with the u bolts and nuts. Ford lists them seperate.
