I put the ICON kit on the front of my 06 F250 CCSB. It made me 1" taller to the front. Swapped out the F250 rear blocks with F350 blocks and I am level, or at least close enough that it looks right. Hope that helps.

How bright are your PIAA head lights? Are they blue color or bright white?

Have you measured to see what height you need?

Best ride quality will always be from using a V code factory spring. You can get a hanger lift in 2,3 and 4.5" which will enhance the ride quality by giving additional travel.

If you want new springs and 2" and the best ride quality get X code springs will ride better than any lift spring.

As always a 2" lift needs longer shocks and requires a adj track bar or a correctly made drop bracket to correct the axle that has now shifted 1/2-3/4" per 2" of lift. Its geometry.. a science. The axle shifting will side load your spring bushings which will cause premature failure and doglegging.

PM me if I can help.
