F350 Stock Block Height

I have purchased some F350 front springs, but I'm not sure what size blocks to get for the rear to get a level height. I've read where it can be either 2" or 3". Can anyone help me out?

Thanks,
Scott

What exactly are you trying to achieve with your suspension?? It will also depend on what you have for rear springs.

Re: F350 Stock Block Height

I have stock f250 springs. I'm not trying to lift the rear too much, but have a level truck when I install the f350 springs in the front.

Re: F350 Stock Block Height

if your puttin f350 springs in the front of your truck and your runnin the TTB its not a good idea, i dont think them springs are designed for the twist that the axle produces and could cause issues, better off just doin add a leafs or put a Dana 60 under it

I reread your post and you didnt mention anything about a D60. F350 springs are NO GOOD for a TTB suspension

Re: F350 Stock Block Height

You are correct. I forgot to mention that I'm putting a D60 under it at the same time. I don't have the money to do the RSK right now so I'm just trying to do the part I can, while I can.

Thanks,
Scott
