Readylift 3.5 front and 3 rear

Anybody running the ready lift level kit with 3.5 front and 3 rear? How do you like it? It says you can clear 37"s with it! Would like your input on it! Pics also if you have them! I may run it on my 11 f250 on 18s

I've heard that 2.5" is the safest and maximum leveling lift. Going 3" or more can cause problem like bad angle in the front suspension.

You could get the radius arm drop brackets. Trevor at pmf makes them that would help and then a trac bar

Yeah I had that one, worked okay, but I wanted a full spring replacement suspension so I went for the BDS 6" 4-link. I needed something quick and low cost so that the tires would fit and that fit the bill.

It doesn't replace the shocks but gives you shock extender brackets.
It also includes the track bar drop bracket, radius arm drop brackets, brake line hose flip brackets and a front sway bar drop bracket to maintain the front end geometry and your axle won't be sticking out more on the drivers' side.

It's the most complete spacer and block kit in my opinion, but I wanted something nicer than just a spacer and block kit.

This was how my truck looked like with the ReadyLift 3.5" front coil spacers and the 5" rear blocks. So you can see the radius arm drop bracket and the front spacers in this picture:






For comparision purposes, this is how it sits now with the 6" ... If you want to try to stuff 37" tires I'd definitely go with this height to reduce the possibility of ripping out the wheel well liner. With the 3.5" level kit I had that happen once with the 34.9" Duratracs (they're metric so not quite 35") when I had the steering turned a bit and then hit a bump. I'd rather have wide open clearance and not have the chance of that happening at all. I also like to have a bit of rake because yeah the level kit looks cool when the truck is empty, but when you load it it sags the other way and that is not nice.
