3/4halfton is starting off with a positive reputation.
This is after getting the Front Dana50 TTB and leaf springs installed. Just thought I would jack the rear up to get an idea of what it will look like after the 10.25 sterling.

I currently have the truck sitting on the 10.25 rear end and the factory 2 inch blocks. With the factory F150 leaf springs it still sits about 2.5 inches low which I will plan on making up with either a larger lift block or extra leaf springs + re arching.

One thing I am considering is adding air suspension to the back to supplement the rather weak f150 leaf packs. One other concern is axle wrap. If I choose to go with a larger lift block the axle wrap would be amplified. Hopefully Traction / ladder bars will cure any problems with that and I can keep the plush ride of the f150 springs.
