Help with leveling kit.....

i have a 05 f250 cc swb, I like the look of the harley ride height but don't know which leveling kit to get to best match the harley. I'm going to get 20" factory wheels and will be running the 275/65-20. Also I don't want the front end to be higher than the back so if anyone knows the difference between my f250 and the harley f250 let me know... thanks

The front end ride height is determined by the installation of plow package springs or not. Trucks with the plow package will be approx 2" higher in the front. I would be very surprised if a Harley Edition had the plow package, but if the truck was ordered and the buyer wanted a plow package, it very well could have it. My truck did not have the plow package and I installed 2" front leveling pucks and it's dead nuts level per the tape measure to the top of both F & R fenderwells.

the ride height of your truck and a harley should be the same. there are not different like on f150s. to answer you question if you want a leveled truck get a 2" spacer

Or you could buy my stock 2010 F350 coils and go up an inch in the back to a 4" block and sit like a 1 ton.. Jimmy will vouch for me I am a stand up seller!! "Right buddy !! LOL" Pretty doubtful the Harley came with the plow package but I have seen people do a lot worse with nicer trucks LOL...Steve

It may have been the types and wheels then because it sat higher than my truck, they come stock with 20" wheels so how do they keep the tires from rubbing

Yup, Steve is a great seller! Fast shipping, too fast actually, he sent the parts out before I sent the funds. How many guys on here do that?

I'm doing the 1 ton look for my 250. I'd have gotten the 350 front springs if I didn't already have the 2" spacers. My 4" blocks are in the garage waiting for someone to put them on...

Offset and backspacing go hand in hand along with lift to avoid rubbing issues no matter what set up you run for sure. Hell I had a slight rub with setup in my sig with a 4.5 almost 5"inch lift because of the backspacing still a zero offset but the 2008-2010 stock rims were +45 offset and 6" backspacing. I say drop the money and go with Icon the ride is worth it alone or sure IMHO...Steve

Jimmy I never noticed the UK in your sig now I like you even more!!!! And thanks for the good word!! I was born in Louisville KY and raised in Somerset on lake Cumberland. I sure miss those trees and mountains sometimes

I graduated from UK in 2000, Material Science Engineering, still a Big Blue fan. I still have many friends down that way....the best man in my wedding has a slip for his houseboat in Buzzard Rock Marina on Lake Barkley. I'd move back in heartbeat, but life happens.
