2.5 lift

Hi guys what would be a good 2.5" lift to get? It would be going on my 2006 F350. I am going to be getting some bigger tires too. Getting the Nitto Terra Grappler 295/70/18 They measure 34.41 fully inflated. I was think about get the Newton 2.5" lift kit. Any other's that would be good too?

Are you looking to lift it or level it? From the sounds of it you are looking to level it since Newton lifts only go down to 3" from what I can tell.

The Newton kit is great. It supplies everything you need for a good price!

All of the leveling kits are pretty much the same. Some spacers go under the coil mount and some go on top. My only suggestion is to get a kit that comes with shock extenders or new shocks that are the right length.

How much taller than my truck do you want to go Brian?

Mines a leveling kit and almost the exact tire size you are looking for.

With just a leveling kit your truck would sit about 2 inches higher in the rear than mine

I want to keep it the same look as stock just go up a little bit. I no the new tire will do that. Just think about a small lift if the look is not right to me. I am going to be getting a 5th wheel camper soon. So I don't want to go to high. The newton lift or leveling kit witch ever you call it. You can get diferent block for the back.

You might want to look into an adjustable trac bar too.
