Suspension Alignment Lift Kit

I'm wanting to throw some 2.5" Icon coils with 1.5" spacers in my truck (blocks in back and new shocks all around) My question is what would I have to do to make the sure my caster, camber, axle alignment ect, ect. stayed in spec? Do I need an adjustable track bar? New 4 link?

Would I be cheaper to just buy a 4.5 Carli or Icon kit?

At that height you will need the following to do it "right"

Adjustable track bar
Sway bar drop brackets or longer end links
Brakeline relocation tabs or longer brakelines
Radius arm drop brackets. new radius arms, or a 4-link conversion

Yes,
At that point you would be best off doing an engineered system.

Yeah I have. Didn't want to do spacers. I already have Carli progressive 2.5" coils and 4.5" tgc block and nighthawk shocks. Haven't installed yet. Just looking if I need anything else. Going to probably order a carli trac bar

In addition to the coils you will need:

Longer shocks
Adjustable track bar
Caster Cams
Front brake line extension tabs
Something to lift the rear if it's an F250

Pure has a 4" lift with everything you'd need. I think that would be a better plan than buying a 2.5" and adding a spacer on top.

Best results will be by getting a new kit, I'd highly recommend a 4 link kit as it helps the ride quality and allows correct castor..4.5* to be set.

We carry both Pure performance and Icon. PM me if I can help.
