lift ?

i am looking to buy a 02 f250 psd. i want to lift it about 8"-10" not sure which brands are better than others. i'm new to trucks let alone diesel. i also wanted to know what are the pros and cons to dual shocks front rear or both. just a little info if it makes a diffrence on the lift i will be towing a car every now and then. i would like to have a fairly smooth ride i know it can only be but so smooth but every bit helps. thanks in advance for the info.

If you want the very best rideing kit Donahoe is the the best out there. There are many lifts that are much better than Fabtech and procomp. IE Rize Industries, Donahoe, RCD.

For an 8"-10" lift your looking at Rize, RCD, Donahue, or a custom four link.

I have got an 8" Fabtech with Fox Shocks all around and I love it. Rides a little stiff but what do you expect.
