hello everyone

Recently picked up a 2006 Ford F350 4x4 and i want to refresh the entire front/rear suspension system and all the components involves in the way the car drives, turns, handles and feels on the road.

Whats is the best place to source parts like this? everyone was talking about motorcraft for all the engine related stuff but i dont see any info on manufacturers for the mechanical, i saw some suspension kits on ebay but not sure about quality. where do you buy your stuff?

Anyone want to help me compile a list of the must have items required to make this truck drive like new? Appreciate you

Looks like you covered an initial build well. My one suggestion is don’t waste your time with the factory oil cooler. If you can afford it do the bulletproof heavy duty cooler with cold weather kit. I have done a lot of 6.0s and the bulletproof cooler kit is hands down one of the best mods you can do to a 6.0.
