Hydraulic suspension for 4x4 1997 Ford F-250 7.3?

Hello psn, I’m looking for hydraulic suspension for my 97 Ford F-250. I have been looking for it, for this truck, and was wondering if there was hydraulic suspension for my truck? All I want to do is be able to change the ride height for my truck, with the press of a button, either on the dash or somewhere else that I could do it easily. Thank you

Look at air bags.

I doubt that there is a hydraulic option out there for a F250

Kelderman makes air suspension kits for all super duties, but that doesn't really help unless you axle swap, then maybe you could mod it to fit. Any Level Lift also makes just what you're looking for, but its for the 17+ super duties.

Shoulda bought a Cummins.

Any Level lift does exactly what you want, but like mentioned above, they only make it for newer vehicles, and modifying to fit would take ALOT of work

They use a little 12v electric hydraulic pump to drive a hydraulic ram, which pushes on a cantilever that actuates the height of a coilover. They also have a lot of special drag links and panhard bars to maintain correct steering and axle placement. Very expensive stuff

Might just go with airbags then.... I’m also in the need of new suspension, and was wondering, what’s the best bang for your buck aftermarket suspension, and the best airbags that go with that suspension?

Sky's Offroad makes some killer shackle reversal kits for these trucks. That way you can lift it but not worsen the ride quality; you keep the factory springs. They even make a kit to convert to super duty springs as well. Not much experience with airbags, but you got Firestone and Air Lift that I know of.

Shoulda bought a Cummins.
