6" to 4" Lift

Alright this may be a dumb question not real good when it comes to all suspension parts. Got an 06 F350 with 6" lift. Got a great deal on some 33s on 20x10s. To drop myself 2" in the front can i just replace my 6" Coils with 4" coils or am i going to have to redo everything. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Levi

Re: 6" to 4" Lift

The biggest thing to watch is the drag link to track bar relationship. My pitman arm was for a 4-6 inch lift on my 2003 and my track bar bracket has two holes in it for the same purpose. But, I'm leafs and your coils.

I'd look into the trailing arm brackets, too. I don't know if you use the same for 4 and 6 inch lifts.

If all components can be used with 4 or 6 inch lifts, then you're just missing some 4" coils.
