4" Front Lift Question

I just bought an 01 F350 and right now it has a 2" front pro comp lift spring and I want to change the springs to a 4". If i go to the 4" do I need to do a trac bar bracket and pitman arm as well?

I'd do a 2in hanger kit and adj track bar. That would be a good cost effective route. And you can get your axle recentered. If you already have the adjustable track bar you're good to go.

I'd agree depending on op's budget. If ride quality is a concern, I would stick to oem springs and 4in hanger kit.
This is what I did on mine.

i was planning on ditching the springs and going to a set of Icon 4" springs and shocks.

So all i would need would be an adjustable trac bar and i should be good to go?

Possibly longer shocks depending on your current shocks.

No, 4" you need a dropped pitman arm and track bar bracket along with longer sway bar links...we have all, including Icon's.
