Need lift help

Hello,

I just purchased my first SD, 2012 F-250 4x4. I have had lifted GMs before but dont know much about lifts for Fords.

I am looking to maybe just level and change the shocks. Interested in quality high end setup, maybe Fox shocks or Bilsteins?

What are my options and what would you guys do?

If your looking at 6" 4link lifts which are easy to install yourself. Check out my threads Project:BlackOps in the 6.7 exterior forum

I was thinking more like 2.5" or so.

Who are some manufactures?

Icon is probably your best bet for a 2.5. Also I think skyjacker, BDS, rough country and ready lift make 2.5 spacers. And I also heard rumor Carli is making a leveling kit which I'm sure if paired with King Shocks will provide the best ride

Can you run Bilsteins or Fox shocks instead of the Icon?

I've read a few people are not happy with the ride quality of most Level Kits,IMHO this is because No Level Kit drops the Radius arms,by lifting the front a few inch's and not lowering the radius arms you throw the Caster angle out the window LOL so Ride quality will suffer some more than others,This is why some Have posted that they went from a Level Kit to say 4.5 or 6" lift and the ride improved infact some say Better than factory!

Hey i read it on the Internet so it's gotta Be True

It sounds right ,but Keep in Mind I have Zero first hand Knowledge of the above Statement

And prolly never will as i Know better than to try a Level Kit when i will end up with 6" and 37 Toyo's Level kit for me would be a waste of time and mone ,and i don't have either to waste

The Good news is ,i think the level company guys are getting wise to the Poor ride quality thing and may address it with Future Kits! Good Luck....
