you can buy them from jeremy from lidiesel.com. he will treat you good, he's a good guy. i have the superlift leveling kit but it was a waste of money b/c it rides like sh*t. go with the DR mini packs and get some DR shocks.

just my .2

We carry DR products, they are on the site but it is a little confusing, if you want prices let me know.

Please tell me that you didn't put blocks on the front of your truck?

Hey Dave...I gots a question.

What are the advantages of going with these, versus trying to find some "X" code ford front springs?

Also...my truck has a bit of the "stink-bug" stance (azz in the air LOL ). I was told that if I level out the front...I will have clearance issues with my fiver. I would think it would gain me a bit more room...as I would fulcrum the rear down a bit by lifting the front a bit. Do you know of anybody that added the mini-packs and had trouble with towing?

Thanks
Dave

Please check with your local and state laws. Many states have now outlawed the use of front blocks for suspension lifts due to being extremely dangerous. I'm not mocking you or belittling you...far from it. I've seen pictures of the aftermath of frontblocks squirting out from the suspension after a panic turn...and it was very ugly.

the spring shop i got my new U bolts from had nothing bad to say about them, i definitly wouldnt go any bigger then 1" but they do the trick. they havent moved and theyve been in there for like 3000 miles. they are dowelled so they accept the dowel on the bottom of the spring and have a dowel that go into the axle so that they dont move.

thanks dave. prices would be great if you don't mind.

go with hangers there cheap and it wont stiffen the ride
i've used these on jeeps before and they never raise it the height they're supposed to, also with all the weight in the front end, i wouldn't want them to become a week link.
