Question for those running a Newtons leveling kit.

I recently purchased a Newtons 2.5" front leveling kit for my 05 F250. I'm going to be using F350 rear blocks. I was hoping that somebody could give me the size of the carrier bearing spacer so I could fabricate one for my truck. Newton's front only kit does not come with the spacer.

Thanks

You can buy a kit that comes with different sizes, of just get several pieces of shim stock. The general rule of thumb is 1/4" of shim for every inch of lift. If you still have shudder, you can make adjustments from there. Every truck is different, so it just takes some experimenting.
