Marshall, you've put F 250 coil spacers on your rig. Can you give me some more feedback on this? Also shackles, please.

Thanks and welcome aboard!!!

spacers and shackles

Well I got the part number from a post on this site for the spacers, they are a pretty simple design that is about two inches tall, about a half inch of which fits inside the coil, and rests perfectly on top of the factory perch, I have heard good and bad things about these, but I figured the only sure fire way to know is to try it! So far I am very happy, since I work at a shop that does alignments, me and our align guy just replaced the camber sleeves and then set everything to spec, cost(I hate to say this) nothing, had the sleeves at the shop, and just donated my old ones (just replaced a few months ago) to the stash! The shackles are great, they were a sinch to put in, I used a lift that raises by the frame/or body, and just put them on the front of the spring mount(make sure the springs wiil clear them) and lifted the truck, taking all weight off the axle, pulled the bolts from the orignial shackles and put on the Warriors, just had to pull the spring down a little to line up the holes, one side at a time is easier and safer, if you don't have tall jack stands! If you have any other questions let me know! Thanks for the elite welcome,
Marshall

Spacers is something that really intersts me. Do you have that part number handy? another thing is that I already used 2 degree bushings to align my front end after installing a 2" suspension lift. Is there a way to further correct it?

Thanks,
