Lowering question!!!

I have a 2010 F-250 Harley Davidson. Im really going different with this project and going with a 28' wheel on the truck. Can anyone recommend a lowering suspension for the F-250?

Yes it is a 4 wheel drive. I know most guys would be lifting it but I have no street parking and wouldn't fit a lifted truck in my garage so I have decided to make it a street truck.

Here are some links that might be of interest to you...

Anyone ever lowered a 4x4

The only tire I can find for a 28" rim is a 325/35/28 which is 37" tall.

I had to install a 2.5" leveling kit on the front to run 37's without rubbing the inner fender. And with stock F-250 rear blocks, your front will sit slightly higher than the rear with a 2.5" front kit.

I just put the wheels on they look great but do rub the inner when on full turn.

Get some pics up when you can. I would like to see how it turned out. Did you lower it?
