I will be back in clarkston first week of march if you wanna meet up.
Are you back in texas now? I still have the camaro, after a few years of wrenching on it and bad luck (got water in my engine while it was outside for a week and had to get new heads and a new block! crap!!) It's almost done. i was getting a lot of work done on it for a month and then school and work took over all my time and i haven't had much time to work on it in the past few weeks. it finally should be out this summer if all goes well.

The guy has many setup options, maybe better to call him. He is Jason, he knows F250's real well. With my 2" and 1" I fit 20"x10 Helo wheels with 33x12.5.20 Toyo MT with a tiny rub. I pulled the inner rubber fender back some with tie straps and all good. The big decision on what will fit is the wheel backspace. I dont remember what mine are, just got em. CHeck the helo site for MAXX 8 in 20x10. I also installed the front 2" blocks myself, not too bad, 5 hours with a few beers. I didn't have jack stands tall enough to reach frame in rear to drop axle so I paid my alignment guy to put the rear blocks in. No change in ride, maybe smoother due to tire. I realize now I need dual stabilizer shocks so budget for that if you go 35. I went 33 on 20 for $$ reasons and will do 8" Rize with 37's one day. Hope this helps. Only have one bad pic of truck but will upload. Getting all shined up tomorrow so will take another later. Sorry for long blabbing but I did my research and hope it helps. Let me know what you do. Oh, here is the link to Newton Lifts on eBay or just search it. Guys name is Jason. eBay Store - Newton Lifts and Suspension Parts: LEVELING SYSTEMS, FORD BLOCKS, SUSPENSION LIFT SYSTEMS
yeah i'm looking for a 2.5" front and raise the back another inch (as i really don't want my truck "leveled" i still want a rake to it since i tow a lot in the summer) I'm aware wheel offset plays a lot in the rubbing of the leaf springs, but i don't want to look like a mexi-pimp special with 14" wires sticking 5 inches out of my wheel wells
My bosses brother has an '05 6.0 truck with an "ebay" kit that is 2" front and 3" rear with 325/65 nitto's the truck has the perfect stance/height/tire size in my opinion and i just want something similar for my truck. a friend of mine has a 4" lift on his 99 and it's just a bit impractical for my DD uses. I need to still be able to throw my dirtbike in the back on my own and hook up to a million boats at work
