I am about to order new tires and at the same time I am buying new Rough Country t-bars and Superlift 5.5" springs. I didn't really want to spend this much right now but my stock bars and springs are both worn out and sagging so I guess I am going to have to. I have thought about removing the stock 2" block and replacing it with a 3" or 4" block and also adding ford keys if needed to level it. Will I be able to crank enough to level it if I get 4" blocks or would that be too much? I am trying to fit 35x14.5 SSRs. I think that I would be able to crank enough since that will give me 7.5" of lift in the back and the lift is designed to be adjustable to 7.5". I just need someone to help me and confirm this.

From what I have read on here, the springs tend to give more than 5.5" though. Does anyone know if this is true or not? A buddy of mine has the springs with a Superlift FIT and ford keys cranked to the max in order to level it.
Thanks in advance.

Nope. My first truck was a 95 SCSB but I have had a 2002 ECSB Z71 for about 2.5 years now. I kind of wish I had the old truck back at times.
