Carli 4.5" lift question

Have a question about the 4.5 lift for a 2006 f250. I see they dont come with the springs or a block, and in the description it says f250's require the f350 block. What size block will i need in order to sit level without adding 2 blocks(the one i buy plus the 350 block) Not sure how big the 350 block is. Im assuming an inch but not sure. So will i need a 5.5" block? 6? Thanks!

Carli is currently in the late stages of prototyping an add-a-pack for the 2005-2007 trucks. These model years have a very short leaf pack that did not respond well to intitial testing. Now, there is an add-a-pack that works great and is going into production.

Overall, the best ride will come from the full leaf pack when paired with the back-country system or higher. As for the taller block, the f350 block is an inch taller than the f250 block so it should be utilized in conjunction with the Carli add-a-pack to maintain a level ride height once the front is lifter 4.5"

Maybe another month or so. It will still require the use of the f350 block with an add a pack though
