Make sure and get leaf springs for the rear and not blocks.

If you own a 350 then it will be the same as mine.
Get 2" blocks from a F250 with 4" Pro-Comp rear springs.
This will raise the back about 2"
Get 6" front springs.
It will sit almost level.
With the 4" blocks in back it sat back end high and rode like a tank.
Or just get a 3-4" lift for the front and leave the back alone.

If you have a 250. The same minus you have the blocks already.

WIth the truck more level, it will ride better.

I beleive he wants to tow with it!!So if you level it the front will be high when towing and not steer as well!!!If you make sure it has a 2" rake it will tow alot better the truck will be more level with a load..

yes i am going to use this truck to tow
no i do not want to use blocks

i just want to know if i will loose any towing capacity and what are the good and bads of a 4-6 or even a 8 inch lift on a 04 super duty. its a short bed quad cab. if it matters its a harley davidson edition cause my truck stock seems like it sits higher than other 250s
