A little more ........

I have an early 99 F-350 Dually with a Jack It 2.5" leveling kit . I was curious if there is a "correct" way to add just a little more lift without breaking the bank . I think mine needs to be about 2 inches higher . If there is a way to do this would I have to get a new track bar or will mine adjust enough . Any info would be greatly appreciated .

I was wondering the same thing. I have 2.5" mini spring packs on the front of mine and 3" blocks in the rear. I was thinking about putting drop shackles in the front and 5" blocks in the rear.

yeah adding lift shackles to the front and bigger block in the back will work although you will prolly have to get longer shocks to go alont with it im not sure on the shocks though but if it were mine id wanna replace them anyway

If you have an adjustable trac bar, you should have enough thread left to get the front end centered. If you dont have an adjustable fabtech has a nice one for about 200.
