I have a 99 F250 4x4 and the frontend of my truck sit lower than the back. I am puttin big bumper on the front of it so I know it going to weight another 250 pounds. What would be the best way to raise it up..thanks

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.
