Lift 2.5" or 3/4" I want it square

I wanna make my 1997 F350 4x4 look extremely square as possible with some fat tires. What is the best price for the money, the best lift, best tires and rims, and where to buy?

I would do mini packs from deaver.... that should put u right where u wnat to be without braking the bank.

Best lift would be a reverse shakle flip from PMF with a SD spring swap. But at a minumum i belive that puts u up around 4" which will have to be couppled by 5" rear blocks (which i would also get from PMF) or get rid of the blocks and do 5" lift springs so u dont have to battle axle wrap unless u wanted to to traction bars also. Talk to cary at CT Performance inc. And he will hook u up. He deals pmf stuff also i belive

Why not just a 4" sky jacker lift?

All my springs, shocks, and bushings are worn and shot they have to be replaced. I wanna use a good shock something like a Bilstein shock but I don't know what size and what one.

With a 4" lift what rim and tire size will be the largest possible? I want wide fat tires that have a good look on the truck the will fill the wheel well they don't have to be off road I'm looking for more of a AT tire vs a MT tire.

*****What is the difference of having your axles above the springs? Than below the springs?

PS- I'm only doing this because I just got my E40D rebuilt ::head smack::

the reverse shackle flip puts the shackle that is in the front of the spriings ans put them in the rear wear they should be... as for the skyjacker....... id do an RSK with SD springs, you will be much happier with the ride. in my opinion but dont know what kind of $$ you lookin to spend
