What would happen if I went F250 coils AND 2" spacer? would the alignment be too far off, and would I have to get new shocks?

I want to do an add-a-leaf or 2" block in the rear with it and call it a wrap.

What about just getting 4 inch lift springs?

That would seem to be the best long term answer in my opinion...but opinions are like a-holes everybody has one. Lol

Pretty much anything that changes the height of your front end changes your alignment. I would recommend getting itchecked whether you use just the f250 or both.. Or a lift for that matter. And if you just use the f250 springs you don't "need" new shocks but I would recommend them. They'll still work nicely for elevated bumps __-__ but for lowered bumps like potholes they won't extend past where they are --_---
So if you do a total of 4 inches of lift, to answer your question, you will need new shocks. And personally I would go with a procomp lift. They have one that I'm looking at right now, lifts the front 4 inches and the back 2.5 so it'll level it out and lift it for you. Plus it comes with all your shocks.

I JUST got done putting a set of Moog cc844 springs on my 94 F150 4x4... dont know why the hell I didnt do that before now! Best thing I ever did to that truck. To bad I cant drive it for a few days though. Need to get the camber fixed now...way out of whack.. but it will be worth it. Next... body work. Iowa winters have taken a toll on the ol girl. Mechanically its great, have always taken care of it, owned since new, but with almost 257,000 miles... and alot of winter driving....salt....the body needs some TLC.. once that gets done, she will be sweet! But, she still has the same heart and soul as when I first bought her, so while she may not be as pretty as she used to be.. she is still all 100% there ready to take on the world! :-) Hell of a truck!!!
