Just bought a 12 F 250, so I'm going 35/12.50-20 just to confirm, 2" level kit in front and remove F 250 blocks and replace with F350 blocks in rear, is it cheaper to get the blocks for rear aftermarket, and if so how thick are they, I can just imagine the price of F350 blocks from Ford ! I also notice Top Gun has the 2" leveling for $69 as opposed to Auto Springs $128 but Top Gunz don't include the shock extensions, are they a definite must ?

2015 Rough Country leveling kit

Looking for some feedback/advice, I purchased the Rough Country 2 inch leveling kit item 514. Haven't installed it yet....looking for some feedback before installing it on my 2015 Super duty.
Thanks

You pull anything? If you do you're headlights are gonna point at the sky after a level kit. Personally I would never use one, every truck I see with one has a sagging rear if hauling or towing even something light and then they look dumb as hell, lol!

F150s can sometimes get away with it, they have stiffer suspension. My 350 squats as much or more pulling the same 5th wheel as my 150 did, 350s have a little softer top springs for a better empty ride, which is 1000 times smoother than a Chevy hd.

A leveling block is nothing more than just that, no matter the brand. The more expensive kits come with brake line relocation brackets. Probably wouldn't hurt to re-adjust your headlights after. Regarding the towing squat, you are going to get that regardless of the presence of the leveling kit. Completely a different issue and you will need air bags or similar to fix that.

My truck has always looked level to me. After reading this thread I decided to put the tape measure on mine. With a tool box with a bunch of tools and a floor jack, mine is at 41 inches front and fear. I guess the "camper package" and heavier duty springs raise the front ride height.

I have the snow plow prep package on mine and while it's not sitting on solid pavement I decided to tape my truck anyhow and my Measurements with stock tires (LT275/65/18) are roughly as follows:

Front 40.5"
Rear 42.5"

Now if I add the difference (1.5") in tire size for the 35x12.5 tires to my original measurements I'll be at:

Front 42"
Rear 44"

Now I am looking at and considering the Ready Lift 1.5" kit (installs on bottom of spring) which I think will put me where I want to be

Front 43.5"
Rear 44"

Does anyone think I'll need a track bar relocation kit with only the 1.5" kit?
