okay guys im lookin for a lift! unfortunately i dont have a sig yet so i'll lay out my info...

:rockwoot:early 99 PSD 7.3 6 SPD Handshaker SuperCab Short Bed 4x4 Off Road :ford:

the problem im running into are there are so few lifts for this particular truck (early 99) that im not sure what will work.... whether or not i can get a late 99 lift if it will bolt on or what mods im gonna have to do. Im lookin for either a 4in or 6in 4link coil over suspension. similar to the full-traction lift. however as far as i can tell its only made for late 99:lame:. any input is greatly appreciated

this one will work on your truck dieselman... Full-Traction.... the only problem with that i dunno if it will work on my EARLY 99. :shrug:

that one does come in 4, 6, or 8 inch lifts

i believe that fabtech makes a conversion like your talking about. other wise theres some used leaf kits on here for sale for cheap but the shipping might kill you. as i found out. cost me $450 to ship mine from NC to OR. the diffrence in the early 99 and late 99 is minamal. the trackbar is about it. im going to be running a late 99 lift on my early 99 truck and the only thing i need to do is change the track bar to a late 99 trackbar and then drill out the axle side for a larger bolt. if i have to i will weld new plates to the axle side to add some more strength

Oh I have looked at that site several times they must have added the 4 and 6inch kits since the last time I checked them out I will have to call as get a price on a 4 inch kit.

yea they just came out recently which got me lookin again. i figure by now someone would have a decent kit out for the early 99 but so far all i can really find are leaf suspension kits, and spacers :shrug: if i knew then what i know now i may have just held out for a 2000 7.3 lol... dont tell my truck... she might spit diesel on me or... something....

I don't see why you couldn't use one of those Full-Traction lifts have you called them to check out what they have to say about it.

No i just found it this morning while i was here at work.... and i dont get off till around nine am tomorrow sooo I'm gonna have to wait till then. I've been lookin all evening and just cant find anything else. The thing with this lift is you have to buy the coils and shocks seperate which isnt too big a deal they design the lifts to accommadate a variety of different setups. One thing at a time... lol one thing at a time.
