2015 f250 rear blocks

I've done a ton of searches and everyone talks about the 250 rear blocks being 2 inches. I got under my truck the other night and my factory blocks measured to just shy of 4 inches. It seems like everyone says that those blocks only come with the 350s...

is there some sort of package that I might have to come factory with the larger rear blocks?

Thanks

Greg

Ford changed the blocks size with the f250 to f350 sized blocks due to the many complaints of rear sag with the original f250 blocks

250s with 4" block have been discussed many times without any proof. Your the first one I have seen actually confirm it. My '14 had 1-7/8" blocks.

If they are installing f350 blocks why not call it a f350? That and the sticker in the door jam is the only difference between them.

Well, that and the one upper overload spring. Unless of course you have a 2015 with the camper package which gives the 250 the 350's upper overload spring. Then, yes, the sticker is the only difference. We've discussed this before. My theory was and is, it's strictly for marketing to the uninformed. You have to offer both to those who don't know there is no difference. Makes sure they keep both markets satisfied.

No, it's not a recall and not paid for by Ford. It's done at the customer's request and expense. I did my own on my 09 F250. About $100 in parts...

cause there are ugly vehicle registration laws using model as a key to weight for commercial vehicle.. >10,000lb GVWR triggers a bunch of requirements..

the manufacturers would call it all one model if they could..costs them profit to handle multiple almost identical models.

The more I think about it, the less I want to make the change. I already have air bags. The back end is already hard enough to get in as it is.

Air bags are just as good.

Sorry for my ignorance, but if my blocks are measuring a little under 4" is that what everyone is considering the "4 inch blocks" that are on the 350's? I'm just trying to figure out for leveling purposes when I'm looking at pics of other trucks and comparing.

That's correct. They measure a touch under 4".
