Suspension Purchase Advice

Hello all,
I have a 2000 F250 that the previous owner put a 6 inch lift on. This is strictly a tow rig for me, so I am returning the truck to stock ride height (I know exactly what I need).

What I'm looking for from you good folks is vendor recommendations to purchase from. I have priced out Tasca, Ford and RockAuto but figured there would be a few recommended places from the forum folks. And if there is a preferred Vendor who sponsors the forums I'll make sure they get a good look before I go elsewhere.

If your going back to stock then why not shop the local wrecking yards for all the parts ?

Search all of the part numbers individually. You will find that there is not 1 vendor, who has the best price on everything. I buy parts from a lot of different sources, depending on pricing and availability. Amazon, Summit Racing, 4wheelparts.com, American Muscle, Jeggs........tons of resellers out there.

You're going to pay a premium for new, OEM-quality parts like the ones you're looking at. I would go to the junkyard or pick-n-pull to get what you need. Or, if you have the space, time and inclination, buy a salvage truck, scavenge what you need, and part the rest out. You may even break even or make a little.

Thanks all... I ended up buying all new and am at less than $600 out of pocket by shopping around. All parts have arrived and I am dropping it back down to stock height this week.
