Smile Installed - 8" Rize 4-Link Suspension Lift Kit on a 09 Ford F250

Installed - 8" Rize 4-Link Suspension Lift Kit on a 08 Ford F250


We just finished installing 9.5" of lift on this 2009 Ford F-250 King Ranch edition. This customer wanted the 8" Rize 4 Link kit with rear Rize springs. He also upgraded to King 2.5" reservoir coilovers w/ Pure Performance's expanded body coils for an incredible ride. We used Rize's coilover conversion kit and our TGC reservoir mounting brackets for a clean way to mount the front reservoirs. He wanted the height set at 9.5" to clear the 40" Toyo Open Country M/T tires on 20" Ultra Predator wheels. We also installed our TGC Dual Steering Stabilizer System w/ Bilstein cylinders which tied in perfectly with the Rize kit.

He is bringing his truck back for Rize Traction bars and for us to swap out the rear Bilstein 5100 shocks w/ King 2.5" reservoir shocks when they come in. He needed his truck before we could finish out leveling it w/ the front. Once it's back in a week or so, we will add a little more lift in the rear to get it level w/ the front a little more. We are also going to be building a custom hitch as well.

Installed Components:
8" Rize 4 Link kit with rear Rize springs
TGC Dual Steering Stabilizer System w/ Bilstein cylinders
Rize coilover conversion kit
TGC reservoir mounting brackets

I am installing a Rize 4-link plus a 1.5" leveling kit, by going up another inch and ahalf you didn't need an adjustable pan rod???? I was wondering if I had to get one or not. Also, when adjusting the 4 links, did you change any of the initial settings (3/8" threads showing on the hiem joints)?

We did adjust the Control Arms, and with the added 1.5" we had to address the track bar also.

As a baseline, how much did you adjust the control arms? According to the instructions a minimum of 3/8" threads and a maximum of 5/8" threads showing. That is not alot of adjustment. Are there different shims for the panrod bracket? I guess I need to bust out the directions again...
BTW, It looks awesome!!!! Wish I could afford some coilovers...

I talked it over with our tech guys and it would be much easier for you to call them toll free at 1-877-274-9362 and ask for Tanner or Jody. Those guys can tell you anything you need to know better than I can over the forums. Thanks
