Ok, can someone clarify please?

1. My truck need new springs, and i would like to go up. SO, do 350 front springs bolt right up?

2. Who's got personal experience with a decent 2-4" lift?

3. Is it better to do the 350 axle swap, RSW (i think thats what its called) and higher springs in the rear?

I plan to run 35x13.50 tires. Any help would be awesome since i want to do it right the first time. I'll be pulling the bed off next week to replace the fuel pumps and sand/paint the frame. :bowfast:

Is this a gas rig or diesel , because if its diesel you wont find any pumps under the bed its up in the engine valley. With regards to the 350 springs i want to say yes they will fit, but just stay money ahead and do an RSK with a dana 60 swap and be done. I believe you can run those 35 with an RSK and no additional lift.

1. My truck need new springs, and i would like to go up. SO, do 350 front springs bolt right up? Yes, but aren't recommend has the 250 springs are stiffer due to the d50's flex.

2. Who's got personal experience with a decent 2-4" lift?

3. Is it better to do the 350 axle swap, RSW (i think thats what its called) and higher springs in the rear? Yes, its better to swap on a complete 350 setup, rear leafs wont really matter. Also it's called an RSK.

My answers in red, as stated there aren't any fuel pumps on the frame rail. Only stuff on the frame are the fuel lines, brake lines, wire harness and the rabs valve but thats further towards the front of the frame.

Rear leafs do matter, going to SD B codes will make a big ride quality difference and are recomended with a 3" RS kit and SD front V codes if you want the best ride quality..

We developed this mod 12 years ago and have everything needed..PM me if I can help.

stupid rope, if you can hold off until the new year I can help you get situated with great prices on all the parts ( my buddy has connections ) and we build the trucks all the time still from when he owned his business. I might even have some friends with old lift kits layin around...and I can show you other trucks around base I've had my hands on and what they're running and stuff....just an idea for ya and you can meet some new people around the area to hang out with as well.
