Where the front of the front leaf springs mount is referred to as the spring hanger. A hanger system type of lift will include a replacement hanger that relocates the front spring mount farther down to provide "X" amount of lift, these types of lifts also include new longer shackles for the rear of the front springs.

Ok, not sure why my post from 2005 popped-up, but why not update all ya'll?
12 years now and no issues from my 3 inch body lift. Very easy to work on the drivetrain with the 3 extra inches. Swapping out the IAC and COPs is much easier for us with Gassers. No stress cracks visible anywhere.






More room in the engine bay

3 inch F-250 body lift kit installed 12 years ago. No stress cracks anywhere.

Glad it's worked well for you.

Do you still have the original rubber on the body mounts? Are they noisy under the front seat with the extra leverage from the 3" puck?

Body mounts are original- I have 113k on my truck and almost no rust, so maybe that helps. I was thinking of going to Polyurethane mounts when the OEMs start to get loose and noisy. Leverage issues have not shown up after 12 years- always assumed the body weights a lot less than the frame/engine/trans/axles/tires, etc. Wonder if anyone knows what those weights might be?
