Best to get the factory F350 blocks, they are 4" and have the bump stop built in.

Check out Newton's Lifts online. They will know exactly what you need. Blocks and UBolts for our truck at $140, IIRC...

Yeah, you can swap the f350 block in an f250... I would probably stay within your year range to be safe. For 4wd, they are 3.5" compared to our 2". Might still need new Ubolts.

I have this kit - http://www.amazon.com/Pro-Comp-62244-Suspension-Block/dp/B005F0M828
No taper though. You can always add a steel shim to the leaf pack if you need some angle. Some folks shim the carrier bearing if you have one.

Maybe try and track down an F350 RCLB part number from the dealer and ask them if it's tapered.
