Default advice needed

alright so i just ordered a 3" leveling kit for my 2004 f150 fx4 supercab, do i need a rear block with this or will this be fine? its a lift from readylift and the salesman told me i did not need a rear block but i dont think he knows what hes saying, i really dont want the hassle of having to pay more money for a rear block but let me know guys will this 3 inch work with no rear block?

2.5" is just right. The level itself is only 1 5/8" thick, but combined with the change in the angle of your strut when installed it makes a full 2.5" lift. My friend with an 05' sxt scab got the 3" and he had to put in bigger rear blocks to make it level (then again his sits higher than mine now!).
