Default What do I have?!? 13 6.7 Dually

Wondering if anybody can give me some insight on what I might have going on here. I bought my truck used about a month ago and it is a 2013 F350 Dually. Obviously when I got the truck I knew it was not at stock ride height. The guy from the dealership claimed it was a 4.5" kit and judging by the front end pieces, it is a Rough Country lift. My question however is the rear suspension/leaf pack. Every year dually I look at it seems they only have roughly 5 leafs including the overloads in the back. I clearly have way more than that but no idea what leaf pack, what brand, or anything of that nature. The truck has a very rough ride compared to a stock F350 which would make since by the rear leaf pack but just wanting to see if anybody knew off hand what these are and where they come from. Thanks!

Yes I know rust...

Damn that is one janky lift block. I would get a hold of some factory springs and use a real lift block that also encapsulates the u bolts like the OUO ones do with some 3/4 u bolts and I will ride so much better and be way safer, hell you don't even have a bump stop on that block so nothing stops your wheels from coming up and taking out your fenders.

Appreciate the comments! Been considering finding some factory springs but not having much luck. Definitely in need of some different lift blocks.

Figured it was a rough country setup.

Look at the ends of the springs and see if they are all the same shape. Those may be factory with an add-a-leaf.

What do you mean exactly to look at/for? Shape?

Shape of the ends. Last add-a-leaf I saw had square ends, where the factory leaves had the sharp corners trimmed off.

Ahh, ok. I will have to look and maybe snap a picture. From just looking it appears the upper overload setup is defiantly different from OEM since usually its only 1 leaf on top of the pack and mine has 3.

1st thing I see is it has a Gooseneck hitch. The overloads have extra leafs to handle the hitch weight. This tells me the truck towed heavy all the time. I had this done to my 99 when I was snowplowing and had a V box salter with 2 ton of salt in the bed all winter.
I agree the block is ugly. I would find a lift block from ICON or PMF that has the same height and still retains the ear for the bump stop.
