There is a great guide its called anything past a stock ford block isn't safe. I am assuming from your specs there is no factory block snag an add a leaf instead...

If you look closely that is a 3" lift block as opposed to the factory 2.5" mine came with. I would strongly recommend an add a leaf instead if you check through my pics there are several with one installed there are also some with a whole new leaf pack installed

I have them and a set of ford 2" blocks in my garage. They are not safe because they do slip out even when correctly torqued. As I said I ditched them for an add a leaf and now some big leafs.
