14-16in lift help

Anyone have any experience with doing a leaf spring lift and adding spring hangers to get more out of it. To be specific 8 rough country with 6in spring hangers? The good the bad stuff that has to be changed anything will help.

you will need address steering / track bar angles and lengths. driveline lengths and angles, probably something along the lines of hydro assist steering, brakelines....ect. contact PMF ( trevor ) he seems to be knowledgeable in large lifts on superduties

You will need:
longer brake lines
longer shocks
6" shackle and hanger kit
Index ring and crossmember
crossover steering
crossover trackbar kit
hydro assist (recommended)
rear traction block kit (recommended)
one piece rear drive shaft (high angle CV recommended)

We have all of the above components except the drive shaft and brake lines.

Driveshaft you will want a good local shop to do it with the truck in front of them. Brake lines, I would recommend Crown.
