where are you located? I have a set of add-a-leafs that were never installed. They skyjacker for an 05-07, but you will have to see if they will work on your truck.

i guess i'll have to deal with the ride, replacement springs are like 1200, as much as the lift cost to begin with..........

they already stack the lift blocks, i have five inch blocks on top of the stock blocks, but i'm told i can't do taller blocks, could i use f350 blocks and get an extra inch or so

as for the ride, it doesn't ride too bad, i lifted it with a few thousand miles on the clock, so i don't really remember what it was like before
