Dropping my f250

Im curious if anyone has done a body drop on one of these trucks, its an 06 f250 4wd Ive already lowered the rear about an inch but I want to drop it another inch all around without losing the ride quality.

Any suggestions?

With the work involved to channel a vehicle (or body drop as it has become known as), only an inch would be a waste of time.

Regardless of what you call it, a body drop has NO effect on the suspension. How could it? You're hacking the floor pan, not the springs. It's no different than a body lift as far as ride quality goes.

Oh yeah, if you need a longer track bar/drag link to lift a 4x4 Super Duty, it only stands to reason that they should be shortened to lower one.

Also make sure you have enough driveline slip after the drop, bottoming out the driveshaft on a rough road in a 7500lb truck could get ugly.
