Is there any thing to do to lower my 99 4x4 f250 probably 3 in the front 4 in the back
Think about it more along the lines of an all wheel drive car or suv. If you don't go off road with your truck there is no real reason to have it so high. Lowering improves handling by lowering the center of gravity. With big power 4x4 will help hook it up, maybe you want to do some competitive pulling with it. There is no reason to have it that high. I like the idea of four wheel drive, but don't really have a reason to have it so tall. I also like the look of lowered trucks.No offense but why would you want to lower a 4 wheel drive vehicle? :dunno:
sounds alot like my truck, roll pan, 6inch miter black in the bed below the cab, 20inch black wheels, lowered..looks coolwell to be honest i love the 4x4 look and off road but im looking for more of a sleeper drag truck look and it doesnt hurt the mpg like a bug off road rig does.
damn i was really hoping to go more than an inch in the front
eventually i plan to have an 05 front clip (maybe). Im going with a flat black paint job and get some black cragar 352 series 16" rims and a roll pan in the back and a black powder coated 5 miter cut stack about 8" below the cab
What I was thinking was finding a piece of steel pipe and cutting it in half length wise so it makes a c and cutting out above the axle and welding it in place. Then boxing the frame in on the inside. It should be plenty strong if you use the same gauge as the frame or maybe a little heavier. I think the axle is at least 3" in diameter so I would try to find a 5" pipe or bigger.I can weld pretty good and i have some friends who weld really good ( one of them won the Texas welding state tournament) what would we need to do for the C notches ?
Yea, that is what we are discussing now. The crossmember under the oil pan is actually a hair lower than the oil pan and it would dictate the extent of the drop. I have a 1 ton and the suspension only has about 3 inches before it hits the bumpstops anyway. I would say a 4-5 inch drop would be possible with cutting.what are you guys trying to do? lower the front? the biggest problem is the oil pan
