With a block you have a higher chance of axle wrap I guess. Anything more then the f350 block is not recommended. Also never stack blocks. Springs will still give you axle wrap but less then with a block, installation of traction bars minimize axle wrap.

the 8" spring pack is alot stiffer of a ride but much safer and better over all then the blocks IMO

Check your states laws, some block lifts are illegal now. I have the magazine it was in, but can't remember what one it was in. If you can't find anything on it, I'll search for the magazine tomorrow.
