Un Lifting a 2002 F-250???? Powerstrokehelp.com???

Just got this pickup and im thinking i might want to take out about 3 inches of lift on it. Its just a little too high for me and I am swapping out my dick cpeck rims and nittos that are 285/65/18 off my other 250 i have,they are pretty much brand new. it will help the look of the truck out much better with less lift and the smaller tires i think and hope.

Now it says i have a 6in dual Pro comp lift on it. what i am wondering is if it is going to end up cost me alot of money and a lot of time to bring it down three inches. and what will it take to do this? or am i better off just leaving it this tall and just buy some new bigger tires. Let me know what you guys think. And thanks on my last post helped me out a lot. i also ended up finding this site called powerstokehelp.com if you have heard about this site let me know what you think on all his videos.

I dropped my truck to stock height via stock replacement leaf springs and i couldnt be happier. Better steering response and better ride, plus significantly less wandering. The previous owner simply installed 3" front leveling springs and never touched the steering components (which are out of alignment if you add 3").

Now if you have a 6" lift, i would HOPE you also have all of the necessary steering modifications! In that case, you will need new front and rear leaf springs, plus stock steering components. Yup, expensive. Probably more expensive than the 6" lift. Did you save your stock stuff?

Post an add on Craigslist, I'm sure you can find some dude with a leveling kit who wants to trade you lifts.

Also, the Powerstroke Help guy is an idiot.

Thanks for bumping a 2 year old thread just to say that. I hope you changed your HPOP oil.
