Installing a levelling kit in your Ford F Series truck will provide for more tire clearance and the additional height will make it look more agressive.
On the F-150's they have used a strut suspension since the release of the 2004 models and the level lift will be accomplished by installing a spacer on top of the struts. This is easy to do and does not require and special tools. If you do happen to buy the BDS kit then you will need to disassemble the struts as there is a spacer that goes on top of the coil spring thereby splitting the job of levelling between the inside and the outside of the strut for better ride quality. To do this you will need a strut compressor.
The older F150s from 1997 to 2003 are lifted using torsion bar keys which are indexed different from the factory ones to provide the lift.
The Ford Superduty F250 and F350 models are levelled with a coil spring spacer. But if you want to go up more than an inch or so then you need to add other parts in order to maintain factory steering and suspension angles. These additional components include a Track Bar bracket, sway bar drop brackets, brake line relocators and maybe even a few other small parts. Make sure you look at the parts you are getting with the kit you buy as the cost will vary based on the parts you are getting and therefore the finished results.
There's not much that looks better than a set of tires filling your wheel wells. And now it's easier and more affordable than ever with a kit from BDS Suspension, Belltech, SBx Parts, Performance Accessories or Zone Offroad. A leveling kit varies by vehicle design but can include part such as upper or lower strut spacers on the late model F-150 models to a coil spring spacer for your Superduty to provide more lift to your suspension.
Although by definition a leveling kit is theoretically designed only to raise the front of your truck we also offer some kits that also provide a small lift in the rear to keep that rake that your truck has built into it from the factory so that the rear of your truck does not get lower than the front when you are hauling a load or towing a trailer.
