Oh 'K gottcha....what are you looking to achieve?

Mine came from PO with Dana 60 with the stock IFS springs with an added leaf on the front with a 3" RSK and F450 (obs I think) spring packs on the rear.....Road very stiff....was lifted probably 1.5-2" over what it is now.....41-42" to center of fender arch iirc is how it sits now.....did I mention it Rode very stiff...heh heh....
I am guessing the F450s will ride stiff, kinda depends on what you want. I really like the SD springs and if you want more height get a 5" RSK for the front and Icon rear springs I hear are really nice set up too if youre looking for lift and nice ride. I also put on air bags on the rear to maintain level ride when hauling stuff...for me I wanted small lift, (guessing 4") with emphasis on handling and ride. So I put on the SDs all round including the F350 Anti sway bars front and rear in addition to velvet ride shackles on the rear. The resultant ride is very nice, it handles wickedly....

That will just make it ride worse. Only way to get a good ride quality is with a RS-V&B code kit...helped hundreds do this since I first did it so if you would like additional info PM me.
