I need a good 8" lift for my 2010 F350

Im in need of a GOOD quality lift for my 2010 F350 I do not know much of anything about lift kits all I know is that there are some Really good one and some JUNK ones.

Here is what I want to get out of if 8" of lift I would like to fit 40's on it as well and not mess up my drive line and still be able to tow as close as possible to what I can at stock ride hight. and still want a good rideing truck with out vibrations and all that crap. If there is nothing on the market like that i would settle for a 6" lift.... but I want 8"

My sister has a 6" lift on her 08 F250 and its a POS doesnt ride worth a crap and has all kinds of problems with turning and other stuff. and i dont want to end up like her!

So can yall recomend anything?

Thanks.

Yes, you need to contact Trevor at Precision Metal Fab. He's in the process of building my 6'' kit and all his stuff is super nice. Its laser cut and hand welded. He's built the lift for Pahrump's air ride kit and is working on or is done with Toylet's 12'' kit. Toylet just switched from a Rize kit to his kit. His stuff is super nice and his prices are very nice for what you're getting. I think you can find Trevor in the vendor section under Precision Metal Fab or PMF. His name on here is NotStock...

It's supposed to be about 3weeks from the Monday that just passed, but as of right now he is trying to figure out where the coils are coming from. The good thing about him though, is he is actually a normal guy working for a smaller company and you get great service from him. He seems like he's a very honest dude and I've never heard anything from him. I was originally going to go with Rize but they've been having some customer service issues as of lately so that doesn't really leave too many nice brands out there but Icon.

For your ride quality from what I understand, to get nice ride you need the 4link. Several people have told me this, they say that either a radius arm drop or the 4link is the best ride, but the 4link will far outperform. The replacement radius arm kits are supposedly just for looks.

i have a radius arm drop kit and there is definitely better stuff out there. I cant imagine that a radius arm drop and a true 4 link can be on the same level.

Then again i came from a halfton IFS 8" Coilover suspension to a 3/4 ton coilspring/shock Dana 60 setup...so im just complaining

I worded what I meant wrong... Wasn't sayin they are equal---just saying the new radius arm replacements are cosmetic. 4link will really surpass the drop brackets i'm sure. You'd be better off with a drop bracket kit and nice shocks than a replacement radius arm kit. But 4 link is best.
