Default 8 inch front struts

I have a 2011 f-150 4x4 with a mcgaughy 6.5 inch lift on it. I replaced the 6 inch spacer with bds 6 inch strut and put a 2 inch level on it. It only went up inch. I out 37s on and need a few more inches bc I am rubbing to much for my liking even after trimming.

I was wonder if any anyone knows if there is a 8 inch strut I can replace with the 6 inch bds strut I have on at the moment and maybe put thee 2 inch level if I need it. What do the rize and other lifts use for there 8 inch lifts in the front?

Thanks

Full throttle has one. But may put your angles in a bind.

Yea. They are adjustable. The coilover. You only have the strut.

I've ran pretty much every shock out there on one truck or another and I am very impressed with Full Throttles. I'm not sure who makes them for Full Throttle as I doubt they do but the quality is top notch. Ride is excellent.


A lot of people say their truck still rides like stock with a lift/spacer.........................I highly beg to differ. A replacement coil over without a spacer is a night and day difference. Worth every penny of the $1400+ that you'll spend on them.
