6" with level kit or 8" inch springs ride quality

2010 Ford F250, which will provide a softer ride a six in lift with a two inch spacer in the front or an 8" inch coil spring?

It all depends on the coils and shocks! I know we do not make a full 8" lift coil, we only do a 6" coil and a spacer since the OEM coils bow so bad, to do an 8" coil, it would have to be so stiff, it would be crazy not to have it buckle and fall out of the vehicle!

Hope that helps. Nice, progressive rate front coils are a a great option...

re

Have fabtech dirt logic shock and fabtech 6" springs with spacer. Seems harsh now. With just the six inch springs it was a great ride. Thought maybe the 8" spring would help??? Thoughts
