OUO 4link Fabtech Lift

Vehicle- 2008 Ford 6.4 F250 CC Shortbed 4x4

Suspension- Fabtech 8" Radius arm lift upgraded to 10" by 2" coil
spacers and Fabtech drop down radius arm brackets, Icon Track Bar.


Suspension Accessories- Fabtech dual shock hoops with Fox 2.0 res.
shocks, Icon dual steering stabilizer kit, OUO adj. Carrier bearing
drop. 2 Fox 2.0 res. shocks, fabtech leaf springs and 2" OUO blocks in
rear.


I would like to upgrade my suspension using what I have for now. I am
looking for somewhat of a better ride.


1. Would the OUO 4 Links work with the suspension I have?

2. I would like to use coilovers in the front. What would work with my
setup and what upgrades would be needed?

3. The Fabtech leaf springs seem pretty stiff. Would upgrading to
Deaver springs be a big help while still being able to tow ok?

The ouo link bars will work on your truck. I suggest the icon springs with a spacer. I would not run the 4.5" fabtech coilovers. I had them before and they ride like a brick. Icon also sells a coilover if you must have a coilover. Check out this site out.

Extremeford4x4,

So the Icon springs in front with the OUO 4link will make a big difference? What about Icon leafs in the rear? This would save a lot of money not getting coilovers.

It will make a huge difference. Icon doesn't make rear leafs for 08-up trucks yet. So I would recommend a traction block of some sort.

I am trying to keep my 2" OUO blocks and replace the fabtech leaf springs. I am not to pleased with the fabtech traction bars also so Deaver leafs and OUO traction blocks could be an option. Thanks for your help.
