4 linnk conversion for a 2000 ford f350

I'm horrible and using the search on this forum. I know fabtech makes one but for the price I'd rather get a custom 4 link for the front and back done .I only want 6-8 inches. So is there any other company out there that does them or do I have to get it all fabricated? Any place around Atwater, CA I know of a couple of places around here but is there an other places. lol TIA

You might want to look at swapping in axles from a '05 up then using a 4 link kit.

It would probably be cheaper to do the 05+ axles... Then you can buy a kit that will bolt in perfect....

Cary is correct He can help you with your project. He helped me with mine and its the only way to go! The truck rides like a trophy truck and it turns circles around the old leaf spring setup. As you knpw the leaf spring setup you can not make a U turn unless you swing out to the right. With the new setup you are at least 20 feet from the curb. In my opinion the best thing I did to my 02 . Call Cary as he can sell you the part you need and walk you through the conversion. Good Luck

I looked at going with an aftermarket 4 link on my 03, its to expensive.
I bought a 07, after parting it out the axels have cost me nothing.
Go with the new style and don't look back.

I found a set of 06 axles but they have 4.10 in them so I didnt want to deal with switching them out and everything. I found a guy 45 min away from me that does 4 links on anything and everything. For the front and back including all the fabricating, king coilovers and putting everything on came out to a little over $5000 so its not bad. Lol hopefully in the next month or so I'll be able to take it in once it gets out of the shop. Too much money for a new style i don't want to have a monthly payment right now. Lol
