Question Make my 8" rough country, BIGGER

I have a 8" rough country lift on my 01 f250. With 8" leafs, front and back. I am looking to increase that to 10 or 12 inches. I understand i can put larger blocks in the rear. But i am unsure what to do in the front. I also need to know what size shocks i will need when im done.

Thanks

I know a lot of people are installing the mini leaf packs off ebay that claim about 2.5in of lift, with the leaf pack you can stay with the same shocks but you'll need new longer U-Bolts, you could also get a 2in shackle lift for the front which you can find on ebay also, hope this helps, I would also check your brake lines to make sure they wont need to be longer

don't do a mini leaf on an 8" spring. use a hanger/shackle front lift, there's a few places that sell them. I've found that sky-manufacturing has the best prices( a 4.5" kit is right at 330 shipped to the door ).
