Lift kit help

Please tell me what the difference in ride quality is gonna be in these kits and whats the better deal... what would you buy.
2005 2007 4WD F 250 350 Super Duty 3" Suspension Pickup Lift Kit | eBay

2005 07 4WD F 250 350 Super Duty 3" Suspension Lift Kit Spacer 05 07 | eBay

Do RC lifts really ride that bad? im not looking to spend a lot on a lift. whats my next best bet with comparable price if you do not want me to get a RC lift.

thanks in advance.

The $500 kit with new coils is better then the cheaper puck kit for sure. Worth the extra $150 for sure. I am guessing the ride will be 40-60% as nice as it is now.

definitely go for the one with the new coil springs. the cheaper kit just uses a spacer for the coils.

IMO yes. I have seen too many people go cheap, then replace the cheap kit with a nice kit in 6-12 months.

Actually the spacer kit using stock coils would be better than crappy RC coils. Unless u find some progressive rate coils like icons just use a kit with a spacer as long as it is correcting the steering geometry. Check with Trevor at PMF he can put something together w some progressive rate coils. Good replacement coils (icon, etc) would be preferred, but stock coils with a spacer woukd ride better than some cheap coilspring (procomp, RC, fabtech, etc)

the icon kit for about the same height is about 1700 bucks. so perhaps i should do his suggestion and just do the kit with the spacers and new shocks
