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.

1997 F-350 XLT Lariat Crewcab long box 4x4. Oxford white with an ugly green. 133xxx miles. Hide away goose neck, banks turbo, exhaust, inner cooler, intake filter and gauges.

Oh, I'm clueless on on axles lol. About how much would this dana 60 switch be?
