Lowering Kit for 08' F250

I know a lot of people read the title and say WTF why would you lower a perfect truck, well I'm a business man that gets in and out of my truck at least 30 times a day.

So with saying that, has anybody seen a lowering kit for our trucks?
Appreciate it

Not sure how it would work lowering a 4x4. I know if I lived in Cali I would be tempted to have a 2wd crew cab dually on bags and huge wheels. West Coast Choppers built a pretty sick blacked out dually Super Duty they did for Motorola.

Maybe try going to the gas motor front springs and using a shorter rear block,,,PROBABLY give you somewhere between an inch and two inches lower, make sure you have it realigned.

The powersteps are just expensive compared to a lowering kit

Well, you are gonna spend at least the cost of powersteps to lower it so if thats expensive I prob wouldnt do it. How low you wanna go? Do you tow? What kinda tires/wheels are you gonna run? Our trucks are sick lifted and lowered, to each their own.

As mentioned, to lower a 4x4 get some lighter springs up front and adjust the rear block according.

You have limited room due to the front diff housing being there.


I run the Power Steps on my stock height 07. Love them.
