I have an F250 that sags from adding a nearly empty fuel tank to the bed. I added airbags but it still sits low and have to run 20-25 psi to get it leveled when towing. Read there is a tsb for it squatting so much. I'm hoping I can get the bigger block and not have to run so much pressure in the bags.

That brings me to the front. I like the looks of the icon kit. I can get just the springs and alignment cams for $450. Are the icon shocks worth the extra $700? I use 4wd about every week. Not off camber stuff, usually soft ground. Not a bunch or articulating either. Seems I could get the springs and track bar and still have $350 to spend on shocks (or come out of pocket a little).

Is there any flaws in my thinking? I'm not going to the dunes and jumping, just need some more ground clearance and want to let some air out of the bags.

Truck only has 1000 miles. Didn't have any 350s the color I wanted. Came from only driving duallys so the soft suspension is taking some getting use to.

Thank for any assistance or ideas

Called my local dealer to ask about getting the 4" blocks to correct the sagging. Told me that if I had bought it there they would've fixed it but since I didn't I should take it to the place I bought it. 6 months ago I bought my wife an f150 from there so suffice to say I'll go visit with the local guy soon. Worst case is I'll buy it out of pocket. It would be nice if it would ride close to level when I have my fuel tank in it.

I'd look at a rear mini spring pack they blocks are not needed and the air bags would only be used if your towing to level the truck.

You will also need a adj track bar when lifting the front.
Shocks..the Icons will ride a little better than the Bilsteins at 2x's the cost.

We are a dealer for all..PM me if I can help.

The Icon shocks will ride better than the Bilsteins. If you are on a tight budget though, Bilstein will definitely get the job done.
