Coil overs need info

Looking to going to a coil over up front. Im at 14" of lift now need the right coil over for this swap. Will be utilizing PMF coil over brackets. Any help would be appreciated or pics if anyone else has done it.

you measure the truck at full droop and compressed...then look at coilover mfg and get the length thats proper. My truck has a 12" travel king monster 3.0 coilover. coilovers are measured at extended and compressed, exactly what it sounds like...At rest it looks like my truck has maybe 6" of travel but it droops out and ill get the rest, then the limiting strap will come into play. most big mfg of coilovers, king, fox, race runner, will do their coilovers in 8-20" of travel. lmk i can post pics.

OK so I need to buy the bracket kit first in order to measure from the mounting points. I was recommended shocks for the rear in a 14" travel shock length for my 13.5" lift should I also relate the 14" travel to the coil overs? I think I am going to buy the mounting kit and shoot from there. I hear about proper valving involves a lot of math to get it right. I wanted to get the dirt logic 4.0's from Fabtech since they are already valved for the Super Duty but with a different mounting kit. Im not to keen on cutting the stock coil tower as the kit requires.

the dirtlogic coilover is made by race runner i believe. race runner is a great company even if you buy a regular coilover through them. their records keeping on valving is good, they would be able to help you with that. King....dont even think about it. I was lucky enough to work with some great builders who have valving experiece to get my truck where it is. 14" is rather long, but better long than short. every application is different. my coilovers are technically suppose to be 14's but are internally modified to 12", thus losing 2" of compression travel.
