suspension

Okay so i switched to a 02 f250 7.3 recently, my old truck i still have is an 06 f150, I am wondering what upgrades people have done , I was thinking of throwing on some coil overs, but not sure, i just know when i drive offroad the ride is WAY bumpy also I have a 4 inch leveling kit, or so I was told by the PO so not sure what size shocks to go with

Re: suspension

Well I think what you should start off with is getting it straight piped, you will be very pleased, as long with getting an air intake(I prefer riffraff) it's a place to start and you will be happy with the results, and if you are getting coilovers are you planning on dropping it

Re: suspension

i like where it sits so i didnt plan on dropping it, i was wondering if i should look for a set of "factory" replacement shocks, and then add 4 inches to the length?

!? The title of his thread is "suspension" and you mention "straight piped" and an "air intake"....

OP, if you have a 02 and you want coil overs you'll have to convert your suspension to the 05+ or go w/ either a full traction or a custom setup. '

If you're that gung-ho about it, do some research. There are plenty of threads in several sub-forums and other websites about doing the conversions. It's not cheap to do right regardless of which route you go.

"New" 05 no payment, all original 305k and runs like a champ
