Stock suspension heigh question....

Whats the highest riding suspension sent out on the 05+ F350's? FX4, XLT etc? I have a 05 Lariet and all the guys that pass me driving the FX4's look like they have lifts on them. I have the snowplow front springs if it makes a difference. Looking for what i could do to get to there height using stock suspension parts.

If you have an 05 F350 w/ snow plow package then you can't get any higher than that. An F350 sits about 1 3/4" higher in the rear than an F250... The Fx4 package only gives you cheap rancho shocks and skid plates

Its already a F350 so i dont think it would need the blocks in the rear. As far as the front it just seemed like the other trucks were all running level. Is it the snowplow springs that keep the front end down?

no they should actually be a little stronger and make the truck sit a little higher

Maybe those guys already have the leveling kit. I think the coil spacers are under $100.

my friend was over last night. He has a 05 F250 FX4 and his front end is 2" higher than mine and he has the snowplow package. Thats kinda annoying.
