Rear shocks...

Will I need to replace the rear shocks when adding a 5 inch block and removing the stock 2.5..i have a 4 inch spacer kit form super lifts... It says nothing but the shocks just seem short travel wise now... And it's alittle bouncy in the rear now...
Thanks..

Yeah, you'll need a longer shock.

Otherwise you just reduced downtravel. Which can make the ride harsh, and limit weight transfer forward, for less braking grip.

Post a pic of the truck after the 4" superlift if you can.

The superlift kits I see all come with shocks and springs. What's the link to the kit you used?

I was thinking about using the 3.5" sst readylift kit on my 2018 f250 6.2L gas, even though they say it won't work - the offroad shops I've talked to said the exhaust just needs to be slightly modified where it gets close to the front driveshaft on the 6.2s.

I do have a set of rear shock extenders .. I just bought all 4 bilstein shocks.. Rears are the only issue as the front spacer on this kit raises everything... including the shock mount..
​​​​​​
Think I can get away with this for now?

Looks good! Do you have power steps or you climbing into that thing manually?

Can you link me to the kit you installed? Did it come with a track bar relocation bracket? How is the alignment after the install?
