2006 F250 Rear Lift Blocks. 3"? Where to find?

Hi fellas,

I'm new to the forums. I have a 2006 f250 Extended cab, Long bed, 6.0. I put a 2" leveling kit on the front and it sits a little low in the rear now. 3/4" to be exact. I'm looking to lift the rearend 1". I believe to accomplish this goal, I need a 3" rear block in the back. I've heard that they have to be flat blocks when going on a long bed. Does anyone know where I can find these? I looked at readylift, but Im not sure if it's tapered or flat.


Thanks,
Joe

Trevor at PMF "Precision Metal Fab" makes blocks in 1/2" increments I believe and they are very nice pieces.

agreed the 350 block will have the integrated bump stop and you might find a used set cheap
Trevor at Precision Metal Fab has the bump stop option as well
not sure about anyone else

I saw that the 350 Block is 3 5/8". This is why I didnt want to go that route. I would sit too high in the back for my liking. I found a block @ top gun customz. It says they also go in 1/2" increments. Hopefully this is the flat block and not the tapered. I will have to check it before installing. 99-11 Ford F250/F350 Super Duty 3" Steel Fabricated Lift Block Set

I like the PMF blocks because the U-bolts go through the top and bottom plates and secure it 100% in place. Also if you order through his website (ending today) he is offering 10% off by entering "coupon code "GIVETHANKS"

His block, you can order it with our without the bump stop. Tapered or flat.
