4" Lift Kit recommendations?

96 F-350 OBS Powerstroke
want to lift it 4", and replace all 4 leafs, not just the front.
any suggestions on a lift brand?
I want the best out there, money not an issue.
thanks in advance

If I were you, maybe Deaver leafs and contact Trevor over at PMF (NotStock) and have him make you a kit.

there should be several kits out there...I think my old OBS had a skyjacker but I cant recall. Ill try to find out.

Make sure they come w/the track bar relocation bracketry or your axle might be out of alignment (but it depends on the lift/truck)

Do the RSK and SD springs all around. It will ride alot better.

I think the lift kits for those trucks are pretty simple. Not much to them. But Id seriously consider Deaver springs. MUCH better ride.
