I have the Donahoe 4.5 kit. I think the truck rides better now than it did stock. I bought the kit from Superduty Headquarters, and went with their recommendation of the Fox racing reservior shock instead of the DR shocks. I also added the DR 4-link kit at the same time. The whole package was much more expensive than the competitors, however to me it was 100% worth it. This is not an area to skimp on. Oh and one other thing to keep in mind is that DR makes a kit that is a supplement for the 4.5" kit that will raise it to 7", if you want to go higher later on down the road which I think is pretty nice.

They are all good kits just depends on what you want to spend. I installed a Fabtech
on my wifes 07 F150, it rides nice. A friend had a ProComp on a 06 and was a nice kit,just wish he would have upgraded to trailing arms stockers look like crap.

Donahoe or Fabtech way before skyjacker. I don't know how skyjacker makes their parts for the super dutys, in other vehicles I have been around with their lifts, the track bars, joints, heims, etc.... all seem somewhat smaller than they should be. I know with fabtech, when you look underneath, you always get the "wow" effect by the size of equipment they use. Off roading...I have seen many more breakdowns with skyjacker than with many others. Although thats with heavy, heavy! use.

i would say if your going to spend the cash on a rize lift or dr lift you might as well just do the pro comp xxx kit it will give you a far better ride it also does 4 link in the rear as well and does full coilovers all around and their coilovers are made by fox i have ridden in a rize and dr and nether compare to the ride you get with the xxx

IF CAPS ARE ON IM AT WORK I CANT TAKE THEM OFF

Donahoe or rize are the top of the line lifts.

I sell both, so if you need anything shoot me a PM.

Thanks
