Rear coilovers

What would it take to put rear coilovers on a F250? Would this make for a better ride? Would it kill the amount you could haul or tow?

Thanks Mike. I am just trying to figure what would be the best ride set up.

So far in a leafspring set up from what I read and hear it sounds like DR is one of the best.

I am not sure how the airbags type lift rides because I can't seem to find anyone with this kind of set up.

I need to try and smooth this thing out. I have a child on its way and can't picture him bouncing down the highway or likeing the ruff ride very much.

go with a full spring DR kit and de-arch the rear springs. youll be amazed at the ride.

Taking the bottom or smallest leaf or two and invert them so they curve the opposite of how they are ment to be. Softens the ride.

Are there any downfalls from this. This doesn't seem like it is a very popular method to soften the ride up. Well atleast not that I have seen, but I am by no means an expert:

Man that is some BAD ARSS suspension. BUT holly crap looks to me like 18k for front and rear package. I could just go by a second truck for that much

its not very popular because not many people know to do it. as far as i know, marty was the originator of this modification. virtually what it does, is taking all the load off the bottom springs, but flipping them upside down to save you the half inch or so of lift. the modification effectively drops the spring rate to somewhere around a 1/2 ton spring. if you tow heavy a lot, the rear will definitely sag more. youll need to invest in some helper airbags for towing, but theyre really cheap...
