How to make truck ride higher?
Ok so I apologize because I don't know much about the suspension on our trucks so just try to hear me out... I would like the rear end to sit higher than it does (actually the whole truck but I feel like it will be easier to just add something to the rear end.)
I have a f-250 2wd and it has a 2.5" leveling kit on the front.
I thought I may have read on here or maybe somewhere else that I can just install f-350 leaf springs on to my truck. I'm not really sure if this will change the ride height
Is adding blocks to the rear-end (say 2") going to affect the ride or performance of the truck? I know I would have to install longer shocks for this which is ok because they need to be replaced anyway..
Get a 4" lift overall...I really don't want to do this mainly because of the price (not only the lift but the new tires and wheels I would have to also purchase)
I want to be able to do this myself. I have installed all of my own mods except for the leveling kit.
Again I apologize for the lack of knowledge on the subject but the forum has helped me put everything on my truck so far!
