22.5" suspension and tire pressure??

My buddy has a 2003 f-350 dually. Just had 22.5's installed wrapped with Contintenal HDR 255/70/22.5. He wants to know how much tire pressure to run in these tires b/c the recommended 110psi is way to much the ride is stiff. He currently is running about 70 psi and it is better but still little stiff. He also is looking for shocks. He wants Bilstiens but cannot find them for his application. he has a 2.5" leveling pro-comp kit in it. So basically he wants to know

How much air pressure should he run in the tires??
and
What brand/model shocks to get and from were??

Any input would help out a lot thank you.

I was running 45 in the front and rear with my 19.5s. Michelin XRVs. In all reality one of those tires can support the weight of the truck.

Find something in a 7/8 shaft shock. Or go duals. Fox Racing has a nice one.

Re: 22.5" suspension and tire pressure??

I run 60psi most of the time. I have tried 80psi with heavy load and the truck rolled nicely with the springs and shocks, but almost chipped a tooth empty. The springs leveled the truck with 4" lift in the front and about 1.5" in the rear. I have Bilsteins all around. I would have to get a part number for you.

I had tried that for a bit. But with the 40ft gooseneck and a bunch of weight on it, 25psi didn't cut it.

Re: 22.5" suspension and tire pressure??

its been working fine for me with the 30' gooseneck loaded with hay approx 29k total weight and towing a truck scaled at 23,400. I am sure it could be overloaded but it hasn't happened yet

Re: 22.5" suspension and tire pressure??

My Bilsteins are silver with black boots. I got them at the same time I got my springs from National Spring along with the adjustable trac-bar.

I will get a part number for the front and rear as soon as the lets up a bit.
