Lft kit

I'm looking to put a 4'' lift on my 06 f350. I've been doing research and looking at prices and was wondering if any body had some pointers? leaning to a BDS 4'' w/ replacement rear leaf springs, and upgraded shocks and stabilizer. lifetime warranty/100% replacement.

any advice?

I agree with Justin i really prefer the Fabtech but alot of guys will say different... RIZE is also a really good lift for the 250 and 350's a little more on the higher priced side depending on what you are trying to do (coilovers, traction bars, etc..) but from what ive seen and heard they ride better then the Fabtech's but id def stay away from skyjacker and rough country seem to wear out really fast and they dont ride that good.

We do a 4.5" Back Country System. Our BC System includes Progressive Coils, Custom Valved (Proprietary) Bilstein 5160s and you can add full replacement Deaver leaf springs in the rear. We've had rave reviews on that system and also have a Limited Lifetime Warranty on our products.

Feel free to PM me for details and check out the links in my signature to see what sets us apart! No one tests like we test!

I have the rear leafs from bds on my truck and they are fairly stiff. I would go carli or icon.
