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 would ditch the pro comp springs in favor of most any other spring

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.
