In much desperate help lifting a 6 inch to 8

Today 07:37 PM - permalinkrmrichard7
I'm looking into see if anyone cam help me to see which route to take I'm looking into an inexpensive way to lift my 2005 f250 4x4 diesel from a 6 inch basic fabtech lift to a 8 or maybe 8.5 inch lift. Rear has blocks n the front has longer springs. Is there a way I can add 2 inches or maybe even 2.5 inches of lift keeping my already installed kit. If anyone could help or lead me in the right direction it would be very much appreciated[COLOR="rgb(244, 164, 96)"][/COLOR]

Add 2 inch leveling kit to the front. I am talking with the two inch lift blocks that go under the coils. For the rear just get 8 inch blocks or better choice would be 8 inch lift springs. To do this you would need new shocks as well. You also will have to correct the driveline angle of the driveshaft.

That is the cheapest way you can do it.

thanks bigcountry..That sounds good thus was the way I was thinking but just wasn't 100% sure.. Where is a good place to start looking for some blocks and springs? And what are some good shocks to go withas well?

Not knowing where your at. I really can't say where to go. Maybe contact some vendors on the site.

As for shocks, Billestiens, Rancho, Pro-comp, Sky jacker, all have good shocks.
