Talking Installed - Total of 14.5" of Lift on an 04 Ford F250 Super Duty 4x4 Diesel



This is a really cool install today! We have a 2004 Ford F250 Super Duty 4x4 Diesel that we really did some custom work on. This thing has a total of 14.5" of lift! All achieved by some new 8" Front Atlas Springs and 6" rear Atlas Springs coupled with our BRAND NEW Top Gun Customz Ford Shackles that we custom built to 6.5" for this truck. We also built some custom hangers and shock mounts to house the Bilstein 6250 shocks.

The customer has plans on running some larger tires but just didn't have them at the time of this install. Keep an eye out for the truck with the new tires when we get them on. Also, don't forget to check out the Photo Gallery with a ton of pictures of the custom fabrication work we did for this Super Duty.


Installed Components:
8" Front Atlas Springs
6" Front Atlas Springs
Top Gun Customz Ford Shackles
Custom Hangers
Custom Shock Mounts
Bilstein 6250 Shocks

Are you guys a professional shop? Because it sure doesn't look like it.

Or how about those square mounts for the front leaf springs? You couldn't take the time to round the edges and make your work look half-decent? Or those swap bar links.... Ewww.

Overall, it's a nice truck!!! But since it sits so high, you'd think the "custom" fab work under the truck would look good too?

well it is high, i will give you that... im on my fifth lifted Superduty and I learned early to shy away from leaf springs with only 5 or 6 leafs to a pack.. my first two superdutys on leafs i went through mulitple front and rear leaf springs from: rancho, then superlift, the Atlas, then had Atlas re-arced and leaf added, then ended up with 12 pack Deavers.... would never buy anything but those Deavers again... my point.. just looking at that truck jars my back! lol

Again... Ewwww.





I don't know if I like the trac bar mounted ontop of the leaf springs like that either. I'm sure it's fine for a street queen though.
