icon vs. pmf front lift

I noticed a lot of people are running pmf rear lift for better traction, towing and less axle wrap, but on the front people are running icon, is icons front set up for an 04 f350 4" hangers with 4" leafs that much better than the pmf front hanger and leaf set up? not including shocks im just talking about hangers and leaf springs.

PMF doesn't make leaf springs, this would be why nobody has a leaf spring front end lifted by them.

Just go with the Icon setup. There are tons of them out there. It is going to come with everything and designed to all work together.

PMF uses a hanger lift set up. u use your stock springs up to X amount of inches and then add lift springs to get X+ inches. Icon is said to have the better riding leaf spring for leaf pack lifts.

Icon IMO also has the best Hanger kit construction....

You will always get a better ride quality from a Hybrid hanger kit spring lift than from a spring only lift.
