Default 2010 F150 4WD lift kit questions.

Im finally looking to get a lift kit for my 2010 F150. as of right now im torn between doing a 4inch or a 6inch because of how the ride quality is going to be affected. anyone who has theirs lifted and would give some feedback on the brand, height, PICS and how it preforms would be a great help

From what I've read on here, Rancho 4" or BDS 6" are the way to go. If you are unsure what you want, go with the 6" because eventually you'll want bigger. Most of the time ride is the same as stock (Which I wouldn't be happy with, if I'm going to drop cash on a brand new suspension I would want it better). There are tons of threads like this, but I'm lowering my truck so that's all the input I got for you. Good luck in your choosing

Rancho 4 inch.

First lift kit after having the bilsteins, so far have no complaints. Kit seemed very well made and the shop that installed it agreed.

Honestly I have not checked since I don't park in the garage. I would guess no because my garage door seems low to me
