Life is exciting when you come home from the office to find UPS boxes of truck parts at your door!
Now's when the anticipation starts. I bought the 2.5" Icon leveling system from TruckToyz down in McAllen, TX. After talking with a gentleman on the phone for a few minutes, I was hooked up with the 2.5" progressive rate coils, castor cams, 4 Icon shocks valved specifically for the Super Duty, a new adjustable track bar, and 5" rear blocks with new u-bolts.
TruckToyz seemed to think I will probably get a little more lift than the advertized 2.5" because I have a gasoline engine. I wanted to keep the rear of the truck level or perhaps slightly taller than the front, so we decided to go with the 5" blocks over the standard 4" blocks included in the kit.
It looks like I'll have to anxiously await installation day. I'm hoping a full day ought to get the job done. Maybe if I'm lucky I'll have enough time to get to town and into the allignment shop. If anyone has ever installed this kind of thing and has any advice let me know.
I remember trashing a set of ball joints on my 2wd Ford Ranger during a spindle lift. I wish someone would have told me to be careful of the dust boots. Turns out a pickle fork is brutal on those parts in the hands of a noob. I can laugh at that now, lol
It wasn't very funny 1000 miles later when my allignment went to pot.
