2.5 PMF RSK Project

I am planning out my next project on the truck.

I haven't really liked the rake on it since I did the D60 swap, so I am now going to go through with the RSK. I believe that with V or U code Ford SD Springs and a 2.5 PMF RSK kit, I will be sitting much more level. I did notice a difference in ride moving to the F350 springs up front, but looking forward to the RSK ride that I read about with the RSK testimonials I am always reading.

Here is the list of things I know I need:

RSK Kit (going with the PMF kit)
New Shocks (Billstein 5120)
Front Springs (U or V Code)
New U-Bolts

I assume I will need a new track bar? or track bar drop bracket?

What about the rear, might as well round it out. What SD springs are needed for the rear, and are they a direct bolt in? At the time I did the D60 conversion, I did put in 350 blocks.

Thanks in advance for your help. Feel free to provide suggestions of things I may not have thought of and any experience you can add.

The rears your looking for are B codes iirc, and pmf sells an adjustable trac bar for their kit as well

V codes up front. U codes are even softer but john (97beast) is the only one I know of running them

Do you agree that I should be sitting level once I complete the install?

You would be level now if you would have left the stock 250 blocks in

That rear end squated quite a bit after the conversion which is why I threw the 350 blocks under it.

With the Pmf 2.25 kit and v or u codes and 350 blocks in the rear your will be level. Keep in mind a level truck doesn't tow well and will squat badly when u throw a bag of trash in the bed.

X codes will lift the front even higher and the. U will need bigger blocks in the rear

When I first did my rsk (sky) I used V-codes, I thought one was a little saggy amd replaced with W-codes noticed no difference in ride quality or hight. W's are rated like 200lbs less than v's...

I have a 4.5" rsk and 2" aal upfront, stock 350 block and 2" lift springs in the rear and she sits level as can be.

I just did this last weekend on my 95 f250. I did the PMF 2.5 with v codes and swapped the rears with b code springs. I have been driving it with no track bar so far and its been fine. Im going to lengthen it about 1/2" then put it back on. I did a 4" block in the rear and it had to much of a rake for me so i put in a 3" block instead. Tires are 315/75/16 with no rubbing.
