I've got a '12 F350 and it rides nicer than my '04 F250 did. It's a little stiffer on high speed turns, but I had expected that.

Remember, it's a heavy duty pick up truck, not a caddy mine rides nothing like my 09 cts, but that's why I have the cts, for when I want a cadillac ride

I have an F350 and I upgraded to Fox Shocks and steering stabilizer and it rides so much better. Also, see if you can get the computer to learn lower tire pressures and that too will help. Just make sure you air back up before you tow. On-board air will help for sure. That is my next addition.

Here's my set up, powering my nathan p3 train horns and I have a few hose connects.


pm me for any questions

The 6.7's have the softest suspension yet, there is only two leafs vs the 4 leafs the previous trucks had.

If you're referring to the rear leaf springs, it doesn't matter if it has 2 less leafs in the back. The ride quality has a lot to do with the THICKNESS of each individual spring.
