F250 rear spacer blocks in an E250

Does anybody know if the footprint (length and width) of an '08 - '16 F250 or F350 spacer block will fit the same year range for an E250/E350? I have an '08 Quigley E250 with a 5" lift that I would like to bring down (rear only) to 3 or 3-1/2" to make it level. I am pretty new to the site and am doing a build out of the van I bought in December.

Thanks. I am a surf fisherman and this will be my "beach buggy hotel" I'm only 5'9" and I am already looking at Nerf Bars with an additional step below to get into the cab.

I remeasured the lift blocks and thought they were 5" high, but are really only 3-1/2" high. I've decided to not lower Beach Buggy and use a Nerf Bar with additional hoop steps instead. I'm having a shop repair two rusted out body mounts, replace rear shocks, brakes and rotors and survey the front end for needed work. I bought the powder coated PowerStop loaded caliper and disk kit. I have already bought Fox shocks and a steering dampener from agile. Can't wait to start the inside.

There is actually an NC Beach Buggy Association which I recently joined. The name sort of stuck with my van.

Yeah, we got the Long Island Beach Buggy association (LIBBA) out here on L.I.
I make it down to the Outer Banks at least once a year so I'm somewhat familiar with them (NCBBA).
If not for them access to our beaches would be very limited if at all.
They fight the good fight. and worthy of our support.

Same here in NC. We're always on the lookout for movements to close parts of the outer banks to ORV. Have you ever fished the Hatteras or Ocracoke surf tournaments?

No Tournaments but fished most everywhere from Kitty Hawk to Cape Hatteras and then some. We only go a few weeks at a time mostly in the Fall.

Chassis mount repair

Yesterday, I took my van to a shop that does restoration work. They looked at the rusted wheel well mounts and said it could be repaired. I wonder just how important that set (#2) of mounts is. # 1 at the very front are rust free as are many of the others towards the back. The front mounts are attached to the main chassis while #2 is a separate spur off the main chassis. I just don't know how deep I should go with these. His plan is to cut out the area including the rusted channel below and then fab a new section. O could probably buy an electric welder for what I might get charged for this. I have a couple of photos. I would appreciate your opinion if you have experience dealing with this. Thanks.
