10" Fabtech Lift....

I just purchased an 06 F-250 Harley Davidson (posted pix on the general forum). This truck has a 10" fabtech lift with a single shock and spring front and single spring rear. The truck handles beautifuly on the highway and cruising, but I was wondering if there was a way to "soften" the ride up a bit when going over bumps / city streets by adding additional shocks in the front/rear?

Where would be a good source of information to read up on this? This is the first truck Ive had with this size lift so I'm a little unfamiliar with the technicals...

Bilsteins will help alot. Fabtech shocks are not known for their ride quality.

it wont get softer going dual shocks... unless both of them are valved to act like 1 shock... more than likely your front setup is not what is causing the problem... how big is the block in the rear susp? soft ride springs for the rear or the sulastic rubber hanger would help as well

you can also get some King shocks and have them valve them for the rear and the front for a soft ride....
