I thought F350's had a 4" rear block...

After installing a leveling kit I noticed the rear of my Truck sits alittle lower then the front now. I measured the Rear Spring Blocks and they are 3 1/2". I thought they all were 4". I was hoping for a slight rake. Is there a such thing as 4 1/2" blocks?

2005 F350 KING Ranch 4x4

Thanks,

Ray

There's a reason why they call it a leveling kit
Not all F350's have the same rear block either. I do not know why people call them 4" blocks if they only measure 3.5". My dually F350 only has 2" blocks but measure around 1-7/8"

Also what kind of leveling kit did you get?

Also I would not stack blocks, but that's just me. I know it will cost more, but you can get a set of PMF blocks

The guy who invented dimensional lumber was hired by Ford to design the blocks.

He figured a 2X4 was only 1.75"X3.5", therefore a 4" block should only be 3.5".

There ya go. Mystery solved.

Depending on your cab/bed configuration you will probably want to go with a 2.5* taper. Our blocks have three different taper options and are available with or without a bumpstop tang. If you have any questions, just let me know!

Hey Trevor,
When do you know if you need a taper? I have 2" flat blocks on my dually but I was thinking of putting a set of your 4" blocks on. I am not sure if I need to go with a flat block or 2.5* taper.
I am not fully set on what I want to do yet, just trying to do my homework first. Thanks
