I just purchased this kit from you guys, and I was wondering what the max size tire you can run with this set up? I don't mind a little rub and trim. Thank you!

I think you can fit 35s under a leveling kit with no rubbing.

This kit will allow up to 33" tires without rubbing. You may be able to fit 35" tires with some trimming.

Thanks

I have a question I have a procomp leveling kit new springs. Can I add a leaf or a shackle kit and raise it up another 2 inch in the front. So basically stack 2 kits to get to 4". I really dont want to discard the kit I already had installed.

I am guessing longer shocks and drop links would also be required.

You will be unable to use an add-a-leaf with your aftermarket leaf springs. New 2" shackles and hangers are your best route. However when you add another 2" in the front you will have to address a few things. here are the items you will need to purchase to make this work.


Part#: 6611
Pitman Arm
Part#: 7582
Track Bar bracket
Bump Stop Extensions
Bump Stops
Sway Bar Drop Brackets
Part#: 8111(Front) 8181(Rear)
New shocks designed for 4" of lift
Part#: 6552
2" Rear Block and U-Bolt Kit

You can piece part everything like we listed above or you can purchase a full 4" lift, found here> 99-04 Ford F250/F350 Super Duty 4" Rough Country Suspension Lift Kit......Plus, we have plenty of other brands to choose from.

That kit will come with basically everything listed above plus new 4" springs. These are just a few options you have. Just to get you in the ball park you are looking in the $500 range for these items, if you pieced everything separately. We sell everything we stated plus the full kit. If you wish to discuss this further you can call us toll free at 1-877-274-9362

From what I read you can use the add a leaf with aftermarket shackles and hangers. I have just installed a sky manufacturing leveling kit and would like another inch or two. I already have lined up a set of F350 blocks for and extra two inchs in the back. Would you please let me know what a add a leaf and everything needed for the front woud run, thanks.

so this will just add 1 extra leaf on my existing 2 leafs? just unbolt, add, and rebolt?
If you already have aftermarket arched add-a-leafs then you will not gain anything by installing another add-a-leaf. You will only gain what the actual add-a-leaf physically measures. If you have pre-existing add-a-leafs then you will have to go with shackles and hangers.

Thanks
