250 v 350 ride height

Is there much of a difference between the ride height of a 97 F250 HD 4x4 extended cab and a 97 F350 4x4 crew cab? On stock tires and suspension.....

350 should be about an inch higher

I don't know about the ride height but I believe the F250 has two inch blocks under the rear leafs and the F350 has four inch blocks.

Yeah, probably closer to 2". The F-350 needs room for the front axle to move up during suspension compression. The TTB geometry in the F-250 means that the front diff doesn't move nearly as much, so it can sit quite a bit lower. The extra lift in the rear end is mostly to compensate for the extra height needed in front.

...and the 250's seem to sag a lot worse as bushings wear out and the springs sag.

Mine had less than 1/2" to the front bumpstops when I got it.
