Carli, Icon or other. Leveling kit.

2011 F350 4X4 6.7.

Looking to level it 2.5" was going to go with new coils, adjustable trac bar, front shocks, alignment cams. Now I work in the oilfield lots of gravel roads, pitted and rutted up locations. Looking for the best possible ride without changing the rear. It currently has air bags also.

I've got an 09', 4.5" lift with Carli's 2.5 system on 37's. I love it! way better than stock on the street, in the dirt it's awesome. I know a lot of r&d went into their 2.5" leveling system, give them a call, or read some of the forums here. good luck bud

I work in the patch myself so I know what your driving in. We ended up running stock with air bags. Worked out awesome so far and most trucks get a nice lift in the front as well.

I guess I should be asking how the Coil springs differ from each other. Which ride softer?

I have the 4.5" pintop system. Full deavers in the rear. I'm in the patch as well. It would be hard to beat.

If you want the best ride quality you need to replace the factory radius arms..second best improvement is shocks..larger the body the better the ride quality can be.

I would look at a Pure Performance max travel or same with 4 link arms.

PM me if I can get you more info.

All things held constant, the difference in ride quality between a radius arm and a 4-Link is negligible.
