Possible wrong suspension parts

So I just spent 10 hours installing my 4 inch lift kit on my 1996 f250.. and it is not good.

The springs are too much for the drop brackets and my tires are folding inward at the bottom.

I had said from the start I didnt think the springs looked right and the saleman assured me they were larger for the weight of the powerstroke.

I think I got 6 inch lift springs, does anyone know the part number for the 4 inch lift springs for a rough country lift? Or if the springs just need to settle, a speedy way to get them to sit down lower'?

You need a Superlift superrunner steering system when you lift a F250 that has the D50.
FYI Its going to ride worse...if thats possible with RC's springs. I would take all back and save up for a D60 and a RS kit.

If thats not a option then get the steering kit and a alignment and you will solve the problem. Whether the springs are correct..... make that salesman show you the RC parts book and prove he gave you the right springs.

Gave it a rough alignment today (sunday so no one is open), monday it will go in for a real alignment if rough country tech confirms that the springs are correct for my application.

It rides a lot better now with the toe adjusted and drop pitman installed and it looks like the springs settled a little bit. Not much, but it does look improved, albeit still crooked.
