4" lift brands

Hello, I am looking for a 4inch lift for a 2003 ford f250 7.3L

I like the Icon system however they dont offer replacement rear springs. I would prefer a kit with new front and rear springs and to stay away from blocks. Price is not so much a concern as long as it is justified. I have looked at everything from Icon to rough country.

I need help with suggested brands. I would like a nice ride and 4 inches of lift while avoiding blocks. A list of maybe recommended brands from top to bottom would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

you aren't going to get a nice rear ride without blocks. I went that route, got a 6" Pro Comp spring and installed without blocks for a 4" lift. Most would say my truck rides stiff, I say it rides like a ton truck is supposed to ride.

I would look into a set of 6" (4" lift plus 2" factory block = 6" solid lift block) traction blocks. Get the 4" of lift that you want, maintain factory ride, and get a set of traction bars all at the same time.
