Mine's a little rougher too, stiffer front less in the back, feel it sometimes when I hit some dips in the road. Hopefully tomorrow, I can get together with Kris(powerstrokejunkie), Adam's going too, were going to thow on some F-350 blocks and I'll report back how the ride is with them.

Mike,

I went the other way and took out the 350 blocks and put in 250 blocks. I didn't notice any ride difference.

No leaf springs

I purchased the same shackles. Why does my 99 f-250 SD not have leaf springs in the front like everyone else. will mine still work?
