Anyone running the Rize 6" drop bracket kit?

Anybody running it with new front springs. And if so how do you like it? How does it compare to stock? Thanks.

Will ride good little better than stock but unless you go to a 4 link the factory radius arms are whats keeping these trucks from riding great.

caryt - thanks for the info. Glad to hear its better. How much better does the 4-link make it? (Assuming it uses springs as well and not coilovers) Are the sping rate and shocks the same with the 4 link? I know you will be gaining articulation for offroad, but on highway is the 4 link better as well? The caster change of the axle on the highway is not that much. Thanks for the help.

txfireman - Thanks fir the pic. Over at Ford truck world that guy posted and like the way it looks.

My 4-link made a world of difference on everyday driving. Before the 4-link, on a road with a lot of bumps and potholes, the truck sometimes took its own path. Now with the 4-link its straight as an arrow!!

Stock radius arms IMO are junk as they cannot allow one wheel to compress without trying to move that wheel in a arch..acts like a big swaybar. having a 4 link kit will allow some twist so hitting bumps one wheel at a time is much better.

I developed the RS kit SD spring mod for the OBS trucks and also putting '05 axles and front suspension in them..the RS V code will give a better ride on bad roads that the stock radius arms can, Now put 4 link arms on like we just did on a '95 with '07 axles ..world of difference. 4 link arms allow castor changes so you can dial in extra..which IMO is needed.

You can with a 4" lift just remove the factory radius arms and bolt up 4 link arms no other mods required.
