2ish" lift questions
I've been asking too many questions on the chat thread, many of which I can't keep up with so I'll just ask them here.
I have a 2006 F-250 FX4 that I want to lift it just enough to be at roughly the same height as the new trucks. My plan of action is to get a F-350 4" block and 2" lift coils in the front (maybe a coil spacer too if the coils don't lift enough).
With the front my question is, should I go for Rough Country 1.5" coils or Skyjacker 2" variable rate coils? Do you think I should get a 1" (or 1.5-2") spacer or wait to see how the coils turn out? Should I get new front shocks?
For the rear, I know I need new U-bolts so I'm going to get some custom made, should I go thicker than stock? The company I'm going through is a very reputable company so I'm not worried about quality issues as they do all the suspension work on the school buses in the district. do you think the 4" block will get me tall enough or should I plan on doing an add a leaf too? And lastly would I need new shocks (for just the block)?
