OUO Traction block system

I have a late 99 f350 7.3 srw long bed.
I am putting on a 3" hanger in front all Icon infront with 4' leaf springs, and in the rear I was told to run a 9" rear OUO traction block system, is the truck going to have too much rake with a 9" block in rear or will it look decent. Dont want it too high in rear compared to front but a little higher in back is fine... this is what I was told to run from OUO 9" rear block with 7" in front so?. Just asking because I cant find anyone with a set up like this. I could keep my 4.5 hanger in front and run the 4" springs but I am trying to stay right at lift law heights.. any thoughts? Thanks!

Call OUO directly. The owner, Dave, is a very personable guy and always willing to talk and give great advice. He will set you up perfect!

He is actually who told me this.....kinda makes me worry when some other proffesional says get the 8" block in rear then OUO says get the 9: block and it will work with either height. Just trying to make sure the height differnce in the rear wont be too much. I already have purchsed everything just have never got a reply from anyone in this regard. Maybe it comes down to personal preferance, which is fine, I just need to know how much taller a 9" block in back is with a 7" lift in front?

FWIW, I run a 3" Hanger/Shackle with 4" Icon Leafs up front, and 5" Icon leafs with a 1" block in the back and the truck sits pretty level. I run the OUO adaptable bars with the bolt on bracket.

One thing really cool about having One Up Offroad products is there customer service.

If you don't like the height of your truck after you install your blocks. One Up Offroad will exchange blocks with you. I think there is a small re-coating fee, than whatever the difference in prices is between the blocks, and shipping costs. So you can send them back and get ones at a different height if you choose too. Very nice option to have.

So I wouldn't worry about going with the larger blocks.
