    I wanted a little more height in front to level out my truck. It has an F-350 rear block and a 2.5" spring pack in front and a 1" drop shackle in front.

    The front is a little taller but I corrected that by putting some air in my rear airbags until I can put a new shackle back there.

    In the last pic, I was trying to get the new front springs to settle a bit. They are STIFF. TThe front of my truck doesnt even drop with the weight of the plow :help:

    Ha, if we have a good winter Id like to get some 18" wheels and larger tires. But either way, I like the way it looks now.

    I put the 2.5" leveling kit on my 250 since it had the 350 rear block and then I put a 2" add-a-leaf in the front to. And it does ride stiff but it don't move when the plow was lifted.

    Nice truck too

    Thanks

    Yeah the front doesn't budge when I raise the plow. Its stiffer but to me its just right and BELIEVE ME, I am VERY picky about ride and squeaks and rattles. This coming monday I will have replaced everything in my front end other than the axle housing and shafts trying to eliminate a rattle, LOL.

    Better be glad that truck is a CC/SB Doug instead of an EC/LB. Especially that it's not an F-350 also.




    Otherwise there would be a pile of graphics in your driveway and Colin would be a deadman if he told you where it went.:D
