2002 7.3 leveling kit

recently installed a 2.5 inch leveling kit from rough country. The kit included new complete leafs, shocks, and a trac bar. with the kit on the truck seems to sit and 1.75" to 2" higher in the front. the truck is an f250 and i know the blocks are shorter than f350. i do not want to switch the blocks, will 2" add a leafs level this or will 1" add a leafs do the trick?

Re: 2002 7.3 leveling kit

Hate to sound like an ass, but if your 2 inches higher up front, it seems you should go with the 2 inch aal to get you leveled, unless you like the nose high look. If anything you would want the rear slightly higher for when you are towing or hauling. Cause if it's nose high now, it will be worse when towing or hauling.

Re: 2002 7.3 leveling kit

Just run the F350 rear block, about the same price as the add a leaf, less work honestly, and won't change the ride. Buddy of mine has 1.5"-2" rear add a leaf to level out to a 6" front leaf and his truck rides harsh, no other way of saying it. I'm doing an axle swap on mine to coil up front with a 6" lift and I'm going to do a rear shackle flip to get the rear where I want it rather than a taller block or different spring.

E99 (8/98) F-350 CCLB, Lariat, Black/Tan
7.3L, 4R100, 4WD, 3.73, 33s

Whats Done:
SCT Chip w/4 tunes by me; 4" Intake w/6637; 5" Dual Stacks, Straight Piped
Other Mods:
Pro-Tech Cab Guard & Box; Hella 500s (2 Euro, 3 spots); AR9100/AR6200
In The Works:
'05+ Axles w/6" Fabtech Lift; 37" M/Ts on raw '05 8-holes; Sprayed rockers & bed

Re: 2002 7.3 leveling kit

I'd do the block as well. That is exactly what I did. Buy new u-bolts and the block. They also have a factor shim for the carrier bearing. You can use all ford factory parts and it will not effect your ride.

2002 f-350 PSD, 4x4, cc short bed, 6spd, ccv mod, airdog, AIS filter, isspro ev and scangauges, detroit TT, ITP boost annihalator, ITP RR, bellowed up-pipes, ats housing, turbomaster, 3.5 dp magnaflow, very happy with ultra smooth and linear PHP 50t, 80DD and "whisper" tunes.

Can you post pics of your new setup? I am considering this same kit.

Thanks
