Went up an extra inch - ICON TEI Spacer Install

When I put my truck back to stock, it sat right at 2" higher in the rear. Thats right about where a F250 sits when you buy it new. Its been driving me crazy looking at the rear end up higher. I know from pas experience that I dont want it to sit level because when they sit perfectly level, they look like they are squatting to me. So I decided if I put a 1" spacer in the front it would be abut 1" higher in the rear and would be perfect. So I picked up a 1" TEI spacer. I threw it in today and it sits exactly where I wanted it to. It actually ended up being right at 3/4" of an inch higher in the rear. From the ground to the center highest point of the wheel opening is 41.75" on the front and 42.5" on the rear. Exaclty where I wanted it. Next step is to pick up a set of ICON 2.5" Leveling Kit Coils and cut a coil or so (will take some experimenting) off to get it exactly where it is now except with the ride of the ICON dual rate spring.

Anyway..enough chit chat...here are a few pics after installing the 1" ICON TEI spacer today:

Nope lol. I had it all the way up to 8" with 37's. Now that I'm back down I LOVE driving my truck. Now I'm just going to work on improving the ride. Which for a stock height truck is challenging, cause nobody offers aftermarket coil for a stock truck. Dont get me wrong it rides great now, especially with the 08 rear leaf spring conversion. And no I dont want to go up to 2.5" LOL

Yeah, when I was selling everything from the lift I decided to keep the 08 spring conversion and the amp steps.

Looks nice Billy. You realize cutting the Icon springs will stiffen the spring rate.
