Spring rates on coilovers

Hey all,

Trying to sort my suspension out...still. What spring rates and lengths are you guys running on your coilovers?

I have a 10 inch travel coilover on my truck, with a 40-45% droop. Trying to sort out lengths and rates of a dual rate set up.

Any numbers and experiences would be great!

I have not done one on a Superduty but when I did mine on my Scout I got all of my information from pirate4x4.com. They have a great forum full of information about custom suspension set ups.

Gotcha.. What coilovers are you using and what diameter?

I have a extra set of 2.0's and I am wondering if I can get away with running those in the rear.......... I am thinking that might be wishful thinking.

I had fabtech 4.0 coilovers on my truck and it rode like complete s h i t!! Way too big of a coilover. A buddy of mine use to have a harley f250 with King Coils that were 3.0x14" diameter with 3.75x22x350lb coils. His truck was one of the best riding lifted trucks I have been in. Call king/fox or any other coilover manufacturer and they will set you up with the proper spring rated coilovers.
