Need a little lift !!!

I have a "92 W250 and the springs are shot. I could use some advice as to where I should look for a new suspension(Front and Rear.). Ride quality is the most important thing, it rides like a hardtail, and the bed is taking a beating. I haul mostly light loads and small trailers. Sure would like to find a soft ride and ditch the rear blocks. I have 285/75/16 so a 2"- 4" kit max would be great, THANKS ALL!:smoke

Super Lift supposedly makes an awesome soft ride 2" kit. It's acctually a 4" kit for 3/4 and 1ton gassers I've been told. But it is supposed to be real nice.

The "blocks" are what give your rear end lift w/o stiff springs (thus stiffer ride).
[never ever every use them on front, btw.]

The question I always ask is, "why do you want to lift it?" Personally, I see no reason to lift a street vehicle, never been into show vehicles, and for off road, that's the only reason to do so. Lifting a vehicle changes a lot, and the more lift, the more changes will be required. So I'd go the minimal that you can feel happy with.

Skyjacker makes a 2"-4" lift with diesel front springs and new rear springs. It is a softride kit.

I got a 4" one of those for one of my jeeps and the ride was so terrible it really hurt my back. That was the second worst thing I did to a jeep. The first worst was put a 350 in an kaiser cj5.

...and strange enough, these are two of the most common things done.
