1996 F250 6" tuff country lift plus sky shackle reversal ?'s

Hey guys i have a f250 w/ D60 conversion. I have 6" tuff country lift on it and im looking to get a couple more inches of lift, thinking about getting the SKY manufacturing shackle reversal kit. Have any of you done this, and if so how do you like how it rides?

i would check out PMF's RSK kit as it will fit behind a stock bumper and allow you to use superduty springs for more options and a better ride. and they come in a wider selection of sizes for finer tuning or your height. here is their site but you wil have to call about his product as it is not listed

We developed the RS kit SD spring swap in '99..and have helped thousands...

Adding a RS kit to a OBS 6" lift will get you 3" but won't help the ride quality at all.
Ypu will also need many steering upgrades and new frt and rear DS's..

Pm me if I can help

We have a 4.5" RSK kit that coupled with a pair of SD springs could get you the lift height you are looking for aswell as a better ride than you currently have. You will want to run a drop trackbar bracket and matching pitman arm, in addition to an adjustable trackbar and longer sway bar links. You will also probably need longer brake lines and shocks unless you have already gotten these. Whether you choose to go with us or Cary, you will get a great product. Nothing but respect for him. If there is any way I can assist, please shoot me a pm.
