New to Fords

Hi everyone. I am from South of Houston and have purchased my first Ford after owning 4wd Chevrolets, Dodges, Toyotas, and even an Isuzu. I am impressed by the ride and interior but as always I am looking on ways to improve both. I am starting with the suspension. I have put a Readylift 2.5 front and 3.0 back kit only to find out that I should have gone bigger. I am hoping not to make this the first mistake of many. I am now looking at a 4-5 lift.

Well at least you made one right decision, buying a ford . When it comes to lifts, get the bigger lift if you are stuck between to. If you go smaller you will regret it and wish you went with the other option. Im glad i went to the 6, i was originally looking at a 4 and i would have been disappointed. Otherwise

Hank,

I went with a modified Stage II Icon 4.5 inch lift. I ordered 6 inch blocks instead of the five inch blocks, and opted for the track bar with the bearing insted of bushing. After speaking with many people I am hoping it is the best for for my needs. Many tried to to push me towards reservoir shocks but after speaking to Robert at KLM Performance KLM Store | KLM Performance Inc. - Diesel, Suspension, Lift Kit, Shocks, Filters, Programmers, Steering and reading a few articles I went for the non-reservoir. My truck is strictly street and will not be off-road. I ordered it today (Saturday) and it should be here Wednesday or Thursday.
