Icon coils or Carli coils

I have a Pro Comp stage 2 6" lift on my 2012 f350. I'm thinking of trying some progressive coils to see how it will change the ride. Hopefully make it smoother. All I can find is 4.5" coils. Mine is not very high like someone see. I was wanting some ride height coil measurements on the icon and Carli coils. Thanks

I have the I-Con progressive coils in my truck in the 6" size. But they actually work out to 7" of lift to them?? They are made by D&R Racing or at least the name painted on them.
I will tell you the ride is much softer then the 6" coils truck came with when I bought it. They were Rough Country springs and rough they were.
Between the springs and Rancho 9000XL and a rear springpack modification 1/4 spacer ontop of overload leaf my truck rides unreal smooth.
I did also pour 400lbs of concrete into my spare tire to load rear leafs a bit too
Also a few frame stiffening crossmembers too. This forum Last page of SuperDuty Hop I think.
These trucks can ride beautiful but takes some effort.

But it rides mucho better. Mucho Mucho better

Could u measure the height near the coils as a reference point so I could see how much the difference is. Say from the coil seats or something like that

I had forgot about PP. I know all coils ride or settle different. I'd like to get some measurements to compare to so I can keep it sitting the same

How would you like to measure them? We have an 09 F250 Powerstroke outside sitting on 6" coils...

Kind of unrelated but pure performance has some of the best customer service I have ever come across. It was a pleasure buying from them and I am genuinely excited about putting their lift on my truck.
