I want a new.. Suspension I think? Or what else..

I do o lot of hauling, and many miles with this truck. When I'm not hauling its very rough... I have air bags in the rear that help with that stiffness of my truck.

I've also been ridding in a some new 1 tons, and the ride is much smoother.

Towing wise, it pulls like a beast, though in veres to the right, towing or not. I align it a couple times a year, I'm ready to upgrade. I dont want to purchase a new truck. I'd rather upgrade this one.

what can I do for the suspension/axels for 5 grand? To make this truck haul, and ride comfortably. new leaf springs? shocks? different axal?

F-250 7.3 heavy duty. 97 Automatic. I put the flatbed on it, painted it +cab lights. 170k miles, with much more life

Re: I want a new.. Suspension I think? Or what else..

Air ride the rear but forget the front, do a RS kit and SD springs frt and rear with a D60 front axle will ride great. We have ben doing these for 13 years. PM me if I can help.

We only carry the BEST parts and never compromise just to get a sale.

Dealer for: Full Force, Tymar, BTS, Icon, Pure Performance, TW tunes, just to name a few.

Re: I want a new.. Suspension I think? Or what else..

I was facing the same dilemma a while ago, poor riding stock suspension when empty, sagging ass when loaded. I broke out the plasma cutter and welder and ended up with this-
