Default Truck not level after leveling kit

I am new to truck mods so please forgive me if this is a silly question....

I recently put a 2.5" rough country level kit on my 2007 FX4 but now it appears that the back is now lower than the front. Am I just seeing things or was that too much lift for the front? How do I get it truly level?

Stupid question...you installed the 1" rear blocks right?


Level will be at 1.5" in the front...the 2.5" front will be a little higher then the back. Then the 1" block will level it out.

Just the 2.5" on the front is all I did. Guess I need the blocks for the back. Any suggestions on where to get em, I'll start with rough country since that;s where I got the level kit.

There you go!


Where did you get your kit?


I thought the Rough Country kit came with the 1" rear blocks?!?

I would give Rough Country a call.

Looks like I bought a partial kit. It also came from Rough Country. Here is what I got..... http://www.roughcountry.com/ford-lev...t-kit-570.html

I was actually looking at the kit you posted but called Rough Country and he told me if I wanted just the front end all I would need was what I bought. He said that if I got the whole kit it still be lower in the front.

Cool.. getting one first thing Monday.

I got my level done last Friday and my wheels and tires put on this Tuesday. Will I have harmed anything by driving around for a bit before getting the alignment?
