8" rize with blocks and up graded shocks and duel streeing stablizer 3500 plus mis. 100 parts. If I would do over again would have just spent the extra for new leafs in the rear then blocks. But that will change in few months

I have an 8" fabtech. No real complaints with the fabtech kit yet. I did full leaf springs in the rear from fabtech. If I were to do it again I would have ordered Atlas rear springs or Deavers. My truck rides like a tank in the rear, very stiff. If you dont mind bucking out of the seat when you hit a bump then you might not mind these rear springs. If I were to do a lift again for a super duty I would keep the stock rear leafs, use a block and get some traction bars. This way you get to keep you factory ride and towing capacity. Or better yet get the OUO traction blocks! those are pretty nice.
