According to Superlift, you shouldn't need to with a 6 inch. However, if you have a two piece drive shaft, you'll probably run into vibration problems. I haven't with my 4" lift, while other have, I guess it really depends on alot of things. (Mostly, I think it's with the use of tapered or straight blocks in the rear....never heard anything on replacement rear springs.)

Put a 5" on a 97 350 (obs) w/ 2pc driveshaft. No vibration but the local chassis shop checked pinion angle and had to shim rear diff and also lowered the carrier bearing 1 1/2". He told me it just depends on the truck. He only charged $150 for alignment, rear shims and spacers ( square tubing ). This was with a Sky Manufacturing shackle flip on the rear. I do have one of these kits that I want to sell that I was going to put on my "94 F250 (if your interested) but i had a change of plans w/ my truck.

Ill think about it, if i did buy yours, what all other than the kit would i need (spacers/shims/bearing drop stuff)... also what size tires would that allow on a diesel OBS? anyone know?

The manufacturer says you can run a 37" tire on a 350 with that kit.... Not sure about a 250. I was going to add that to my 250 that I already have a 4" lift on and run 40" tires.Check their website SKY-Manufacturing. The kit is complete as far as the hardware ect. You would need shocks and longer brake lines. Its a sweet kit because it maintains the factory ride....i think it actually smooths it out some as the front shackles are moved to the rear of the spring.
