Any cheaper lift for a 97?

I can only seem to find one lift for my 97 F250. A 4" that runs about $700. I would just like to know if there is any other options out there.

I would never lift an f250 with TTB dana 50 unless i did a dana 60 solid axle swap and then your cheap factor is gone.

Does the $700 include shocks and everything else you need? You can get a shackle lift for less than that but by the time you piece everything else together, you'd be better off getting the $700 in the first place.

That kit will work....im positive u have a dana 50 TTB in your truck. they eat tires and ride like ****. Never can get them aligned... dana 60 swap it. U will gain 3 inches from that and add a mini pack if u want higher and u will never regret it.

that cheep lift will cost u more in the long run after u spend 1200 on tires more often then u need. But just my opinion.

I can send you a picture of my rear axle, it has 12 bolt holes and im pretty sure the dana 50 has only 10? When the truck was bought it had a classy chassy sticker on it so i'm pretty sure they modified it some how.

Dana 50 is the front axle on a 97 250 4x4. You are talking back axle he is talking front.
