Front end sits higher then rear after lvling kit install.

Hi people asking for info on what size blocks I need to make my 04 f250 (CC,SB) Fx4 sit level or just a bit taller in the rear. I put a zone lvling kit with the track bar on the front to lvl the truck out, now it sits like I have a load in the bed. Would the f350 blocks fix this and if so do I need a driveshaft shim or should I just order a block kit?

SCT- custom tunes
MBRP- 4'' Exhaust
S&B- cold air intake
Sinister- coolant filteration

I'm not sure on the blocks sorry but my excursion did the same thing. I went with the ride rite air bags they are phenomenal. Better ride quality with and without towing. Also easily adjusted when you put a load on so the truck stays level and keeps that great ride quality. I reccomend going that route.

You see, in this world there's two kinds of people my friend....those with loaded guns, and those who dig.

You dig.

my lift has progressive rate front coils but just a set of blocks in the rear (SRW F350) the front does a great job of soaking up the road but the rear just skims along unless im loaded or pulling a trailer. could I remove the rear blocks and a rear spring or two and sub in the air bags to improve the ride quality while retaining the ride height and towing ability?

I think the answer is yes but want to confirm.

F-350 Blocks leveled mine out perfect with the 2" "Level" blocks in the front.

Check the classifieds or Craigslist or just go to the Stealership....

I don't see why this wouldn't work and help your towing and ride I would double check with a shop first just to be safe though.
