2004 f350 8" All spring lift.
Extended brake lines were needed.
I needed to extend and balance front drive shaft.
Needed to shim the carrier on the rear drive shaft.
Depending on how you lift it a 8" leaf spring will ride alot rougher then a 4" lift spring. My truck rides pretty good for what it is.
You may want to contact Trevor at PMF or Cary about putting a kit together for you. Something like a 6" leaf spring with a hanger and shackle kit in the front, combined with a traction block and a 4" or 6" spring.
I disagree with the user above you will want a drop pitman arm to keep geometry correct and avoid bump steer.
I suggest Icon if you want a quality kit. BDS doesn't stand up to Icons quality.
