There are 3 basic ways of doing it also...

1) Radius arm drop bracket kits (most cost effective, but not as appealing to look at IMO)

2) New radius arms (like the Pro Comp stage II kit)

3) 4 link kits (replaces radius arm w/ full 4 link. Looks killer and the performance is very good, but cost more)

We have 6" radius arm drop kits starting at $799 and 4 link kits starting at $1279. Hope this helps.

I was looking around on the Top Gun website and i noticed some of the kits were listed as "Diesel Only" or "gas only". My truck (actually my dads but i will probably get it in the next year) is unfortunately a V10 and i am planning to do a 5.9 cummins conversion on it eventually. How would the gas/diesel only lifts affect this?

We have a few different options in manufacturers that will fit your needs.
2008-2010 F250/F350 SRW 4wd - Truck Toyz Store

Depending on budget, the Icon 7" is going to net you the best ride and is the best built option and includes a lifetime warranty.

For a lower cost option, the BDS systems are great and come with a lifetime warranty as well.
