Fathers day surprise

So for Father's Day I'm thinking about stealing my dads 96 stroker and fixing it up for him it has sat in our front yard since August when the transmission went out sad thing is its got 150,000 miles so I'm thinking about putting a built transmission in it Stage 1 injectors pillar gauges and a little bit of a lift along with an RSK and Dana 60 swap repaint it put a brand new box on it and rims and tires the question I have is if I did it 3 inch RSK upfront with Dana 60 with the Super Duty Springs can I put a 6 inch lifted rear springs in the back without a rear block and have it sit level as he pulls a trailer with it any input from you guys be more than appreciated I need to know about that lift so thanks for reading I'll post a pic of the truck when I can

Adoption.....

Wish you were my son...any chance for adoption?



The lift springs seem high if he pulls a lot of heavy weight. Bumper pull or gooseneck?

Wouldn't he have a lot of fathers?

As far as lift the 3" rsk should effectively yield 4" since the d60 only adds about an inch, so 6" rear springs would still have a factory looking rake

Re: Fathers day surprise

Thanks for the input guys I'm going for a three inch lift with it sitting level he pulls gooseneck maybe 3-4 times a year plus it helps that I'm 20 years old with a full time job lol what's the best way to get a full 3 inch lift and keep it sitting level?

Nice looking rig, if he tows a lot mite as well have a rake so it sits level when loaded, but just going for level my buddy has rsk on his 350 with stock obs 350 springs and his sits level, so if your going to sd springs that brings it up a couple more and if his is an f250 your going to have to use lift springs in the rear or lift blocks

Re: Fathers day surprise

I'm going for 3 inches over the stock 250 height level cause he doesn't pull heavy often only like 3-4 times a year and usually a few horses or some cattle
