Best way to level (or small lift) Excursion

I'm looking for 3"-4" max. I think my curent springs are sagging so I think I would like to get new springs. My question is will any superduty springs fit and will they provide any lift. I have seen that there is different codes of springs?? Like an x code or v code I'm to sure what that refers to. I want to clear 35"s at the largest but may have to settle on 33"s if there is major clearence issues. Also I'm not to concerned about the ride quality I'm used to one ton trucks. Thanks in advance. Tony

they should fit... if your springs are sagging and you get new springs then they will lift it slightly

X springs sit about 2" lower than superduty springs in the front

Contact Cary at CT Performance. Super informative about Ex lifts. I bought my kit from him but I probably could have bought it a few hundred dollars cheaper by piecing it together on the internet. It was worth the extra money for tapping into his knowledge and and vast experience

They are factory 20" wheels/tires off of a 2010 F350. I think the tires are 265/75R20

I did F550 "X" code leaf springs with a 3" mini spring pack on the front. I did F250 leaf springs (did the B mod) and a 4" block in the rear. I am running 35x12.50x20 tires
