Help with piecing together 4" lift
I know this has been beat to death over the years but I'm tired of searching and searching to only find bits and pieces of the whole picture I need.
I was going to buy a lift kit but they either:
a. are crazy pricey
b. come with lots of stuff I don't need
I am going to be running 315/75/r16's...
I already have both a stock f350 rear blocks and 5" readylift rear blocks depending on how much the front gets lifted from the springs.
I was going to just go with some procomp 4" lift springs because for the price they are a good deal and they are tuff/rough county POS springs which are in the cheaper kits. I only say POS because I had bad experiences with them on my Jeep but anyway.
So I am going to get:
(2) procomp 4" lift springs with Ubolts
(4) longer shocks, pretty sure I may go bilsteins. I don't offroad much and when I do its just mud, so a good ride is worth the more money( Don't jump on my case from that comment and getting Procomp springs... I know they can be rougher)
(1) carrier drop spacer kit, I'm guessing I'll need about 1" but who knows until I drive it for sure.
No need for sway bar extended links because mine are mounted in the frame so I can flip the bracket hopefully.
What get's me confused is the whole adjustable trackbar, trackbar drop down bracket, and drop pitman arm.
I'd prefer an adjustable trackbar in case I ever go higher, but do I also need the trackbar drop down bracket? what about the drop pitman arm for a 4" lift.
Can somebody please clarify this for me, I understand they need to be parallel but I don't feel like starting the job only to find I need extra pieces.
Thanks in advance
