lifting rear end

The truck in my sig has a 2 inch leveling kit so I could fit 35's. When I pull a trailer it sags pretty bad so I wanna add 2 inches or so to the rear. Just wondering what you guys recommend? I was thinking of just adding blocks but figured id get your opinions and/or see if you fellas had a better suggestion. thanks!

Looks like the badge says F250. If it's stock you could swap in some F350 blocks for a small bump. Otherwise aftermarket 4" or 5" blocks would be best. Be ready to feel a tad more driveline vibration if you go too high. Make sure you get the right rear lift blocks.

Some blocks have a taper others are flat. I think the CCLB trucks use the flat blocks. The shorter trucks have the tapered blocks.

I responded to your thread, 89ezgo.

Check out Newton's Lift. They seem to be reputable around here. I am about to order a 4" rear block from them to accommodate my 2.5" front end spacer. I am a tad nose high right now. I want some rake back for towing...

If you want to keep you trucks look (leveled) when not towing, then add a set of Firestone Ride Rite airbags to the back. I have these and all you do is add air to them when you are going to tow your trailer to stop the sag!

If I do the f250 blocks, which are actually 2" taller than the f250, will I need to do anything to my driveshaft? Thought I read somewhere that I would

100% agree. Ive got a set on my 2012 f250 work truck and I beat the snot out of that poor truck. But so far I have yet to have a bag give out. Without them I sag bad even with over loads.
