Everything I have been reading is making my head spin! Some one should have the answer for me. I have a 2000 F-350 4X4 with what I was told by the previous owner 2.5" leveling Kit which is the extra springs under the factory springs. I believe that my factory front springs are sprung. I would really like to keep a level ride due to having larger tires. So what would be a better route to keep the height and get a little more stiffness to help prolong life of the springs.
I have spoke with the local spring shop. He has estimated me at $500.00 for a new set of front springs. For him to install the is a additional $400 to $500. I also called Tousley Ford and shipped to my door and taxes approx. $400.00 for X codes this is with out new U bolts and nuts and washers.
I think I will be installing these myself!!
My confusion of getting the X codes how much of a lift would I see? I currently Have V codes and a 2.5" leveling kit. With my wheels turned completely one way I have about .5" clearance between the wheel well and tire. If I took off the leveling kit and just put the X codes on how much of a lift would that give me over stock height?
This is the leveling kit that I believe is on my truck! So I could just replace the V code springs that came on the truck factory. Or if like I was asking in the above post Would the X codes give me a 2" lift?
Our standard 2.5 inch Ford leveling kit includes 2 front progressive spring packs with teflon pads to reduce friction, Adjustable Track Bar, 2 center pin bolts, 4 U-bolts with hardware and detailed step by step instructions. This Ford leveling kit will allow you to run 35x12.5 tires on a 10 inch wheel with occasional minor rubbing. To avoid any tire rubbing, run 33 inch tires.
