Cool Slightly Lower...

I finally got my 5.4 coil springs in. Got them done today. So my current suspension setup is 5.4 coils up front, no rear blocks, and new factory 4x4 shocks (the black Motorcraft shocks).

What does everyone think?

That's a nice agressive, level looking stance. Looks very mean especially with those wheels and tires. How's it ride?

The 5.4 springs about a 2" drop? Does it ride good enough to justify running 5.4 springs with a spacer to keep stock height? I have to think they are a good bit softer

Appreciate it Dave. The lift was really the only misdirection. Biggest waste of money ever. Found out the hard way that I don't like a lifted truck. Since I took the lift off, this has been the direction I have been intending to go....just took me forever to finally order new shocks and the coils. I also had all kinds of trouble with Fedex.

It was about a 1-1.5" drop. I guess you could do a leveling kit, but that would probably make it ride like it has factory shocks again, so it would probably be pointless. It rides amazing right now. Happiest I've ever been with stance and ride.

it looks cool and so does the gray truck in the back of your last pic. So did you do this more for racing?

Racing is part of it, but I also did it for ride and look. I like a lowered Super Duty, especially a CC/SB.
