inexpensive lift???

I want a 4" lift on my diesel 2000 f250 4x4 and was wondering whats the cheapest way of going towards it. I dont want a body lift and Ill probally be using bilstein shocks. I just wanna fit 35's on there.

Get a quality lift kit. Most of the popular brands, like rancho, sky jacker, super lift, donahoe racing, pro comp, fab tech, tuff country, are all basically the same but they all have there differences. Just shop around for the cheapest and best deal.

Check out the site sponsors, if you can do the work yourself, I bet you can get one pretty cheap. Probably a pro comp or fabtech 4" if you just want to fit 35's.

cheapest way and you will keep factory ride quality is to get a set of 4" shackles for the front a put a block in the rear. you still need shocks but the whole thing would be way cheaper than springs

I'd just put a leveling kit on the front if I was only going with 35's, I've seen it done a million times

What about a set of add-a-leafs for the front and rear and a set of 2" shackles for the front?

cheapest would be a pro comp 4" kit.... you can do an add a leaf then shackles but you would then need longer shocks and a trac bar bracket... once you get all those stuff separate your going to be paying around the same amount or barely less than just buying a full susp system
