I use Rancho shocks. Monroe is their parent company. I'm always happy with the results and they don't break the bank.

That's pretty typical. There are guys here that have gotten away with using coils from 2 wheel drive F250s to level their trucks. I have no idea on the ride quality on that set up though.

The limiting factor for tire size is the number of sawzall blades at your disposal.

I remove universal joints with a vise and hammer. Rest the ears of the yoke on the vice, one or two good swings with the BFH and the caps go flying across the shop. Then I use a hammer and socket to...

Rough Country is of decent quality, and the price is reasonable. I wouldn't hesitate to use their products.

Personally, I wouldn't go higher than 33" tires, and you can fit those with a leveling...

It's probably cheaper, and will be of better quality, if you just have a local shop bend and weld up an exhaust system for you.

Yes it will work. I went the opposite way on my truck when I lifted it with no ill effects.

That being said, in 1989 the speedometer was read off of a gear in the transmission/transfer case. In...

I removed my EGR on my 89 351w and lost a half MPG, and later added shorty headers and gained 1 MPG average. So if you remove your EGR and add headers, it'll probably be a wash in MPGs but the power...

You can get by with a 10" wide rim with 4.5" of backspacing. It also will keep you from wrecking bearings and balljoints nearly as quick as running 3.5" backspaced wheels. At a minimum you need 16"...

The 7.3 IDI is one of, if not THE most reliable engine Ford has ever used (rivaled by the 4.9L I6).
Mileage will be hard to tell because the odometer doesn't go to the hundred thousands place. A...

I put Power Stop brakes on my vehicles. I get them from Rockauto.

These are the specific pads on my truck right now....

Go to a junkyard and pull a 3G from a Taurus. It'll be cheaper than a "new" one from a parts store, and won't light on fire like a replacement 2G still will. Clocking one hardly takes any time.

If your 67 Cadillac rode like your F350 does, I'm so sorry.

Goodyear Duratrac's, Cooper Discoverer S/T's, or the Toyo Open Country AT II are all tires I'd recommend that have good on road...

Cab and chassis trucks have a narrower frame than the normal pick-ups so if you planned on using the rear axle out of that to convert SC, it won't be a direct swap. Spring perches won't line up with...
