Lift/Tow sag question

Thinking about lifting my 2018 F350 just enough to clear 35s. some get them to clear on stock height suspension, I think its mostly an offset/tire width thing. But was figuring a nice 2-2.5 for the front. But my question is this. For those that have leveled and tow a trailer, will it squat with a 700lb tongue weight or should I plan on an inch or so lift for the back?

700 pounds is not a lot really. Probably wouldn't sag enough to be unsightly. IMHO, just wait and see what it looks like. If you dont like it then you could add a leaf or get a 1" taller block for the rear. If you plan on towing heavier then there is the airbag option but that is getting into the $$$

Obviously i don't have an alumaduty but just try it with the lift and if it squats get bags or get a Weight Distribution hitch. I like the E2 but Fastway but there are plenty of options out there. As of right now i haven't used a hitch on White Buffalo for well over a year but i use them on 150s and single rear wheels pretty commonly. they do both sway and weight distro so they are pretty nice.

You have overloads? The trucks are designed to sag till the overloads take the load. Nothing negative about this process

19 F450

Iíve owned previous vehicles but I wonít waste the forum space to list them, oh ya, and you donít care
