f250 or f350 blocks?

ive been looking into getting a 4 inch lift for my truck and all the kits say they come with 3 inch blocks for the rear and i know everyone says dont stack them and what not, my question is with the 3 inch rear block is that suppose to be stacked on the f250 or 350 block, im trying to figure out what height block ill have to order so i dont have to stack them.

another question i have a 2003 f350 but i think maybe the PO might have put a 250 rear block in but idk, when i measure the block it is only 2 inches, am i measuring the right part? its the block right on top of the axle right? ill run outside in a min and post a pic of it with a tape measure by it.

It sounds to me like you have F250 blocks. I have an F350 and my blocks measure 4ish inches. If your looking to get rid of your F250 blocks let me know!

I think for the 4" lift you only need like a 4-4.5" block in the rear.
Guthrie psd are you wanting the blocks off a 250 for your truck

Blocks should be tapered to keep the correct angle on the driveline.
@gunthrie I'm lookin to get 350 blocks but I dont know if it would put me to high for my 5th wheel. Do you know how high your truck sits in the back

I'm not sure I'll measure to the bedline when I get home. Do you know where I can get some F250 blocks?
