Stock rear blocks

I'm a long time lurker and first time poster. I've checked the stickey's and the guides but can't find what I'm looking for (although I'm sure someone will gracefully point out to me where I should have looked).

I have a 2010 XLT super cab 4WD that I want to raise to the same height as my 2004 super cab 4WD XLT. I plan on buying the 2004 torsion bar keys and the 2004 blocks in the rear. I've already installed 16" wheels/tires on the 2010 and have the Rancho shocks for extra travel.

My 1st question is does anyone have a part number (or know where I can get one) for the stock 2004 blocks. I've tried to identify them in the OEM parts sites on the web but I can't.

2nd, is there an inexpensive source for the torsion bar tool. Any parts stores lend them? Thanks for any help.

For the torsion bar tool, i know that Napa, in Canada, sell it.
For the block, I've looked on RockAuto, the don't have it. But, fordparts.com does, could OEM spec be dealer only?

Thanks, but I hate to spend $150 plus on a tool for a one time job. I looked at the Ford OEM parts web sites but I can't tell which part is the block. Do you have a part number form one of those web sites?

We didn't need the tool when we did my torsion key swap on my 08 last year. It went fine, oddly enough. I also used junkyard torsion keys from an 04 sport trac that was lying around, saved a few $
