Ford Superduty 99-04 Leveling Kit - Sky's Off-road Design

this will keep your factory ride but lift it up. the min spring packs will make it a stiffer ride

Yes, the shackles will work. I had a 6'' lift, & I put the 2'' shackles from pro-comp on it. Works great.

Im doing the same as you with the 6 inch lift and 2 inch shackles. How much room do you have running 38s? I was hoping to run 40s or 42s. Do you think there would be enough room without rubbing the bumper, fender wells, or leaf packs?

I can tell you this much if your gona run a 40 or 42 your probably gona rub the spring pack just because of the width those size tires come in unless you have one heck of a backspacing.

To run 40-42" you need a 12" lift unless it never sees a bump and turn's at the same time.

Crossover steering DS's etc will be needed.
