4 inch lift ?

Im about to take the springs and level kit of my 02 and put them on my 97 with the shackle reversal. So I will be putting new leaf springs with 4 inches of lift on my 02 superduty. I have done my research and have read that pro comps tend to sag? is this true? have also read that rough country are tough and cheap but are a little stiff? This is fine with me as my truck get worked hard on the farm. So if the rough countrys are made in america i may go that route but want opinions from thoes smarter or with more experience than me. Thanks. also for what its worth I did email cary about some prices

you cannot beat DEAVER ( or icon ) for that matter. in there truest form, even deavers area little stiff, but will net a better ride overall. ALL springs can sag, but some are known for it.

it price isnt a huge deal killer, look at deaver or icon, you wont regret that you did.

Price is not a deal breaker but I dont want to dump money just for the sake of a name. What do a set of deavers? run? What brands are known to sag?

Re: 4 inch lift ?

I've had Pro Comp 6 inch springs (they are 4 inch lift springs that make a 6 inch lift WITH YOUR STOCK BLOCKS) on my truck for 2~3 years. No sagging other than normal settling.

Honestly, don't piece a lift together. I did and REALLY regret it. I should have bought a 4 inch kit then a separate 6 inch solid block. I hate stacked blocks and those rear springs ride stiffer than my OEMs did.

As long as you're in there, get some traction bars. I have Pro Comp.

I don't know about rears, but BDS Suspension 4 inch front springs are $800 a set. JUST the springs. They better be good for that much f'in money!

I had a bds 4" on my 99 and a bds 6" all spring on my 01 and liked the ride and never had any sag. For the price bds is a great kit. But if I was to do it over now I would look at stock springs with a hanger kit in the front and traction blocks in the rear as nothing will ride as good as the stock springs. Give Trevor at PMF a call as he can build you a kit that will keep the stock spring and get the hight you want for a great price.http://www.pmfsuspension.com

Only lift springs worth buying are Icons and Devers..but for 4" stock V codes will ride much better using a hanger kit.
