I've got a few questions regarding leveling kits. First off, I'm looking to get a new leveling kit. Ive already got a 2" and I am going to give my old one to my dad. He has a 2013 f150. Will they fit? And also the rear is sagging now on mine since it settled and I am going to be getting a 3" kit but what size blocks do I need for the rear end. And yes, I know all of the you're gonna ruin your tie rod ends, joints, and so on. Thanks for any input.

Lol. I apologize I was going down a bumpy road earlier. Anyways, will the 2" leveling kit I have on my 06 f150 fit my father's 2013 f150. Also, what size blocks would be recommended for a 3 inch leveling kit?

I believe your 2" will bolt onto the 13 no problem... now...when you install your 3" do you want it level ?? 2 or 4WD... ??

if you want it level just go with the stock blocks...if you want a rake install bigger blocks in the rear

You just need to get a tape measure out and do a little math to figure out what you need.
