Superduty springs in an f150

Just curious how much lift adding superduty springs would give me. Also curious as to what needs to be moddified to add the new springs. If anyone has any information regarding this issue, please chime in. If there is a sticky somewhere, please link the post, because I cannot find one.

If you look up Moog coil springs part number 844S i believe it is, they are f250 heavy duty coil springs and will give you about a inch/ inch and a half lift in the front but you may need a alignment afterwards.

By superduty I am guessing you mean a 87-97 F-superduty(f450).

You do NOT want superduty springs in a F150.

F 250 springs gave me about 2 inches lift. I had to ditch the blocks to get levelish. And a very stiff ride empty. But i can load her down with logs and the rear sits about an inch lower than front.

Yeah I was talking from a 250/350, sorry for the confusion. I am thinking about going with a shackleflip in the rear, and the heaver springs in the front. With the heaver springs, would that adress the pinion angle? I am thinking that a 4.5" lift in the rear, and then the 2" lift in the front should keep it fairly close to stock rake, and I shouldn't get any driveshaft noise or vibration.

You are going to hate the ride of a F250 or 350 spring in a 1/2 ton.

How about you take out your F150 block (2") and put in a F350 block(4")

it's actually not that bad at all.i did this to my last truck('96 f150.)
however it was a supercab so maybe that helped? but not much of a ride quality difference.she sure hauled some weight good without the front pointing to the sky too.
