I would just use blocks and longer U-bolts to bring up the rear. As far as the front im not for sure unless you get drop spindles.

Re: 79 350 add-a-leafs question

this will be my first truck and it was an old ranch feed truck. it will probably haul heavy loads off and on. will the rear leaf springs be able to handle it?

I bet it would. It's a F-350 so it's a heavy duty truck to begin with.
