Spacers

I am thinking of installing spacers in the front of my F-250. I feel like the rake is towards the front more. I have the snow plow prep package and I still have this. My V-10 was always level and I never felt like I needed this with that truck. Can I get a 1 inch spacer for the front end? Do they make 1 inch spacers for our trucks? Will there be any issues that am not think of? Will I still get this in the garage if I do something like this? Any info would help. Thanks!

Spacers

When you say spacers, do you mean for lift the front of the truck or to move the wheels out?

Icon makes 1" under coil spacers. They are called TEI spacers I think.

spacers?

I would go with the Carli leveling kit for 800 bucks...you guys all spent 40 to 60 grand or so on your awesome truck..why add a spacer...800 is "chump change" if you can afford a 6.7...just my .02$

I guess you've never experienced being "truck broke" before

truck broke

I have experienced being truck broke...my point may be to wait until you have the money to do it right..I am ordering my Carli kit when I get back from my big job in Jersey...I already can fit 295/70/18 nitto's under the truck, so I figure with 34.5" tires stock, I can wait to level it out with a good spring.I just hate to see a guy put a leveling block in and lose ride quality on a top notch truck...

A spacer wont do anything to the ride quality but I wholeheartedly agree with you about waiting until you can afford a good setup. I have re done my suspension 3 times and still wish I would have got a carli system.

your question is crystal clear except
We have no clue about your garage clearance? measure your clearance of the garage and truck then add the lift height

they sell a simple spacers for the front coil both for the top or bottom

both are fine and a minimal lift should have no ill side effects


maybe a slight steering wheel center adjust
