leveling kit options

I have a 2008 F350 cc/sb fx4 and was wondering what kind of options i have as far as leveling kits. I want to be able to run 35's on stock 18's without issue. I have never really been offroad yet mostly just highway and in town driving, but may plan on doing some beginer trail rides in the near future. I would also like a kit that includes all new shocks since i have about 42,000 miles on the stock rancho's. I know there are two types of leveling kits, the spacers and coils, im assuming the coils are very nice but since i want shocks too that might take them out of my price range. Can you please advise as to which kit you recommend and maybe also send me some prices as well, shipping would be to zip code 21061.Thanks for your time.

Well there are a few options. We'll go right to the best, yet still cost effective option. We have come out w/ a new Progressive Rate Coil for the Superduty's.




It rides unbelievable. The coils come with the alignment cams for easy and factory alignment. Pair that w/ some Bilstein 5100 series shocks, and you'll have the clearance you need w/ a better than factory ride! The only option above that would be to pair them w/ the Nighthawk Black Ops Edition shocks which are specifically tuned for that coil, but that will most likely for sure take you out of the range you are willing to spend. The coil and Bilstein option will retail for $679.95. As a forum member, we can cut you a little break on that. PM us for specific pricing. A less expensive option, yet still uses that coil is pairing them w/ some standard white nitrogen shocks (pretty much a replacement for those Ranchos) yet slightly longer for the front for the added lift. That will retail for $499.95. It's a much better coil than you have now, but similar shocks to what you have now, just longer. Then there are simple spacers. Those of course retain your factory coil. Those are in the $75 range and you can pair them w/ whatever shock you'd like. That is not bettering your suspension any, just making your truck sit higher. Let us know which route you're leaning toward and we'll take it from there. Thanks

The prings will give a better than factory ride due to them being progressive rate. Unlike stock coil springs, these springs have multiple, or progressive, rates. The initial rate of these coils (driving around town) is softer than stock. As the spring compresses more, the rate increases (heavy cornering, off road, etc. With progressive rate coils the first few coil wraps are more closely spaced than the remaining coils. These springs are really the best of both worlds....super soft on the street, and a higher level of performance and control off road.
