Cool Slightly Lower...

I finally got my 5.4 coil springs in. Got them done today. So my current suspension setup is 5.4 coils up front, no rear blocks, and new factory 4x4 shocks (the black Motorcraft shocks).

What does everyone think?

I drove up next to a gasser 2wd 2011 F-250 and the ride heights were about the same.

I have to say....I am supper pleased with how it turned out. It's the happiest I have been with my truck since I got it back in 2007. It rides great and the stance is awesome.

Just wanted to catch up with you, instaled the air box, and exhaust, loaded the 210 tune after recieving it on wednesday and already found a problem, my sun roof makes a little noise at about the 105 mph range and up, HA HA ... So far love it, it's nice to feal the power of the truck and the milage jump is a great bonus. Can't wait to try the 250 and 275 tunes.

I think this is a must with the Proxes, since they only come in "small" sizes.

Not much of an offroad truck anymore, but I bet it'll skoot!

Yea. I have the biggest Proxes you can get for a 20" wheel and they are barely 32"....probably not even on the wheels. And yes, it will move pretty well.

I'm not much for a low slung truck but that one looks damn good!
If you put some bushwacker smooth flares on that it would look even betta!

Thanks! This truck is on a diet.....so nothing is being added unless it's for traction control (Cal Tracs). I have a goal of 7700 lbs, with me in the truck.
