Re: lifting

Carli suspension starter kit. Can't really beat the quality and price of that. It will give the front a 4.5 loft. But you will need the stock f350 blocks for a truly level stance.

Re: lifting

leveling kit and you can fit 35's...that is about 2.5" up front...and you can throw F-350 4" blocks out back if you want to keep the rake

best part about a leveling kit with your truck (05-07) is that it won't affect your factory ride. it's a simple spacer, so the same spring rates you already know (and love) are still there

I have the Donahoe Racing (Icon) 4.5 on my F-250. Rides amazing. It's obviously a truck...but nothing too extreme and we have really ####ty roads out here in Hawaii

Re: lifting

Probably have to go with one of the expensive lifts like Icon if you want an improvement in ride quality. Upgrading from the factory shocks will give you a firmer, less bouncy ride and less body roll around corners.
