    Hi All, First time poster, long time reader. I bought a 2003 F350 Crew Cab Dually. It has has a 2010 front end conversion, including going from leaf springs to shocks and springs. I bought a leveling kit from Skyjacker (a 2 inch block to go under the springs) But everything is WEIRD. Instead of...

    Looking for suggestions for front end parts. I know I need all tierods, all the ball joints and suggestions on any bushings I should replace while I'm there. I think I need outer U joints and either rebuild the locking hubs or replace them. Any pointers in the right direction will be...

    Hello All, I bought a 2017 Ford F-250 SD Powerstroke (shortbed) last June. I took it to a local 4x4 shop called 4 Wheel Parts in Portland OR. The guy I was working with recommended an Icon kit and 37 inch tires. He said Icon is really nice. I opted for a 4.5 inch stage 3 Icon kit and the 37...

    Now, I know before I even get started people are going to start jumping on me for wanting a "smooth ride." Slow down, and hear me out. I am not looking for a Cadillac, if I wanted a smooth ride I would have bought a 1/2 ton. BUT, my ride is rough to say the absolute least. It's a '06 6.0 with...

    During braking, occasionally there is a loud clunk that sounds like it is coming from the front driver side of the truck. How hard I brake does not effect if it occurs or not. It is completely random, will go away for a while then it might do it consistently. Guessing it might be dry end link...

    Hello, I just recently signed up to this forum because I need help! I currently have a 4" lift on 37s with 20X10 Wheels.

    New member here! I haven't found much info on this but my truck currently has factory suspension and the front is lower than the rear of the truck by a little more than 2". I've been trying to figure out if I use a f-250 2" block if it'll make it level with no consequences. I'd also like to...

    I have 37 inch tires with 17 inch Walker Evan wheels. The tire is rubbing pretty bad on the stock radius arms, and from what I've read it shouldn't be doing this. I understand Carli sells a radius arm that has an extra 1/2 inch of clearance but their should be another way around this. Wheel...
