Lowered 2005 F250 4X4?
Has anyone lowered a 2005-2007 F250 4X4? I would like to lower the Front of the truck 4" or so and then level the rear of the truck to match with a longer shackle setup that I will build, and by removing the 4" block between the leafs and axle.
The front is not so easy. The axle is roughly 8" away from the frame, so that will only give me 4" of travel, most of which will be through the bump-stops. The easiest way to do this would be to cut the springs. The best way to do this would be to a STIFFER, but shorter spring and a shock to match. Does anyone produce such a kit?
Does anyone have any experience with this? I tow quite often, but only 8000lbs max. The truck sags only 1" with the trailer loaded, so I'm not overly concerned with ruining the workhorse nature of the truck, at least for my use. I have never and probably will never "offroad" the truck, so this is not a concern either.
I would like to keep the stock suspension setup on the shelf should I ever need to return to factory ride height.
Thanks for any tips!
