Lowering 2000 F350 DRW

Anybody know anything about lowering a f350? I dont want anything extreme maybe 2/4 or 3/5. I dont want to lose any payload or towing capacity. Any Ideas?

Well if you don't want to lose any towing capacity or pay load, the max I would go would be the 2/4....even then I would just do a 1 or 2 drop in the rear to level it out....what wheel and tire combo you running?

DJM makes a 3/5 kit for your truck...the front drop uses new i beams and retains your factory springs and the rear uses new shackles and hangers.if you do a lot of heavy towing i also recommend a set of heavy duty air bags for the rear.with shocks and all you can get all this stuff for just over a grand and install is simple.

Belltech doesnt make anything for the F350. Im running the stock Lariat Alcoas. The DJM kit loses your overload spring so you lose the benefit of the dually for towing and heavy hauling. Any other ideas??

The DJM kit with a set of air bags sounds like a good Idea.

The setup i mentioned above is the only way to do it unlees you do a complete 4 link rear setup with full airbags.


I have towed over 10k with this setup and had no problems

Im lowering it to reduce wind resistance for mileage on long hauls of 700+ miles to not for looks, Plus how gay would a 2wd dually look lifted. Good grief Its 26' long and has the turning radius of 2 city blocks! It would absolutely suck in the woods and be nothing but a stupid asphalt queen (ultra gay) I use it to pull things that can really go offroad like a Jeep or a 4wheeler. Right on muthatrucker

Yea but dually's are able to handle fat chicks so you don't have to worry about ruining the truck. Just put them in the bed. Every group of girls needs a DUFF (Designated Ugly Fat Friend). Oh yea and Unbroken's broken lowered 2wd superduty looks pretty tits.
