10" lift coils

Looking at 10" of lift with adjustability. Originally, I was thinking coil overs, and still am, but with the cost, I'd like to look at all of my possibilities. I know Fabtech and Superlift make a 10" lift with standard coils up front. Do either one of these use a 10" lift coil, or are they 8" lift coils and a 2" spacer?

Next option would be to have a set of coils made. The only question they asked was what the OEM# for the front coil was. I'm guessing to check spring rates and size. So does anyone have that number for a 2008 F-250 Crew Cab 6.4L auto FX4 with no special HD option (no ambulance package or upgaded capacity springs)?

The Fabtech system utilizes 10" coils. However this will not provide you with adjustability. Only coil-overs will allow for this.

Funny, my Fabtech 10" setup was 8" coils and a 2" puck.

I thought that the only 10" spring was superlift.

The app guide calls for 10" coils but we don't use Fabtech much for SD applications so I could be wrong.

True, but with 10" coils I can add a 1 or 2" spacer to add a little lift and still be safe.

Thanks Pahrump. This is why I didn't want to just go by what their website says, because a lot of kits have "coil assembly or coil kit". I would hate to run a 8" coil and a 4" spacer.

So does Superlift have a true 10" coil?

Fabtech is a 8" coil w/2" bottom spacer.

Superlift is an actual 10" coil spring that is available now.

I actually have a set of Rize 8" coils that are sitting in my warehouse, I'll sell them to you for $200 shipped there really heavy. If you want them let me know.

Thats a good idea, I had the same one....but I was told by TopGuns, and Marty@ TruckToys that 10" is the most you can do without steering and probably drivetrain mods.
