Probably have to do a shackle reversal kit from sky engineering, then throw in some 4" or 6" lift springs for the front, then you will have to by 6 to 8 " blocks for the back. Then you will need to get custom adjustable trackbar and extended sway bar links if you have them.

Question for you though, do you have a F-250 or F-350? If you have a F-250 i wouldn't lift it over 4".

We can set you up with a custom kit to 12" that will ride and handle great..nothing like a off the shelf kit. PM me if I can help.

I was just saying we can get you higher if wanted..8" kits will ride so much better than 12" kits anyway. PM's to follow.
