Level kit

I want to get the fron of my 05 f250 up and get some bigger tires under it, I want to do a 2.5 inch level kit but i dont want to do the coil spring block kit. Id rather just get new coil springs as my truck already has 185,000 miles on it, Ive came across these 2005-2013 Ford Pickup F250, F350 Super Duty 4wd - 2 1/2 Front Leveling Coil Kit Super Duty 4x4 Standard Ride - TTC-2813 | $163.95 and wanted to see what you guys thought or have any other ideas. Not looking to spend more then $300 on a kit, also what size tires can i fit under it with a 2.5 inch level kit on stock 17in rims thanks!!

While there is nothing wrong with the kit you posted, they are still using linear rate springs. With a linear rate spring, the longer it gets the stiffer the ride quality is going to be. Another thing is they do not include the alignment eccentrics neccessary to get your caster back in spec after the spring kit is installed.

Our spring kits are progressive rate, ride better than stock, and come with the eccentrics needed to aquire a proper alignment.

2.5" 2011+ Ford SuperDuty F250/F350 Diesel Lift Coil Springs

To get the forum discount, you would simply give us a call and place the order over the phone.

You may be able to fit that tire if you retain the stock wheels, but if you are going aftermarket I would reccomend a 305/70 due to the increase in width and turning radius of aftermarket wheels.

You must use a adj track bar...so your budjet won't fly....

Unless you get shock extensions..you need new shocks.

F250..with 2.5" coils lilely will need taller blocks.
