I'm looking at the trail gear leafs right now. I think I might go with them. I know they fit directly into the factory hanger and shackle. And they will flex a lot more than this.

i have f-150 leafs right now and chevy shackles and 6" lift blocks. the leafs flex good and arent too stiff. they hold weight pretty well to. with the blocks tho u get more axle wrap and im gonna build traction bars for that. not sure what exactly u have but my back is higher than urs and i dont have a body lift. so either the leafs or shackles should get u high enough.

Yeah I hate my body lift. I'm going to take it off asap. And I am going to swap in shorter coil springs to lower the front. F-150 leaf springs? From what year? I've been thinking about that since I have a 94 f-150 and the spring have such a freaking soft ride I love them. I think I took out a leaf or two. And I have the factory bloc only right now. My front is 8 inched taller as of now.

may want to wait for the front springs to settle, they will probly drop your front an inch or close to it

I had it made at a shop. All it is are square tubing with u joints. This pics are really bad. I will get some better ones. And my springs should settle but they are still way too tall. They are plus 3inch for an f-150. And I have the stock ones laying around my garage from when I lifted my f-150 so it won't cost me more $.

sas

I've been working on it and I'm having so many issues now! I was loading it onto a flat bed and when I tried to shift into reverse I heard a loud crack and now it doesn't engage reverse at all. And I need a new clock spring.

you might get better flex out of jeep coils rather than f-150 ones. mine are 9" lift for a jeep cherokee and have a 180lb spring rate. they flex pretty well. also lifting your back end probably tightened your rear brakes and locked up ur ebrake. and my f-150 springs are out of like a 99 or somthing but people say to use the older ones like u said. im not sure what the difference is but mine seem to work.

Thanks
Matt. I hope so too its sucks looking at my truck sit outside when I have parts yet to install. Oh well. I haven't lifted the rear and I am only going to put some belltechs and bring the front way down. I have skyjacker super soft ride springs in 3 inch lift in the front but I still have my stock 94 f-150 coils from when I lifted it so I will be using those to lower the front 4 or 5 inches. There is still tons of clearance. But I hate not having reverse I just came to town right now and I got stuck in a tiny parking lot and I couldn't push the truck up the slope so I drove through a bush and side walk to get out.

The ones above are working but the earlier ones are not, unless they are the same…

Nice setup.

The older pic aren't working due to the site experiencing a small crash.

Stabilizer wil help some, maybe frt end alignment.

I have not read much on the SAS’s that are going on but do you keep your OEM Steering Column with the Yoda Steering Box ?

So many things to think about.

Yeah did. Its the yoda ifs box attached via custom steering shaft to the stock steering column. It just has a tape measure alignment right now but it tracks straigt as an arrow down the road.
