when you say adjustable, how do I adjust (what the process is?) it and how much room it has for adjustment?

the kw/belltech coilovers I sell are
Double adjustable (rebound and compression)
will keep it stock height or lower it up to 3 inches. You do this buy just turning the lock ring under the spring.
Rear comes with double adustable shocks
Kit is stainless steel and lifetime warranty.
On a 4x4 will lower it from 0-4 inches in front

So front I can adjust to what height I like.
My concern is, if I adjust truck to level position, like 2/4, and then load it up, than I will have it sitting lower at back, and I will hate it. in your opinion, what would be best solution to it? Would you consider airbags (somehow I think it is cool) or manual adjustment will do?
And how much would this setup be?
What about delivery to Canada (Toronto)?

if you load the rear 1000 pounds sure it going to sit lower than front. How many times do you load up the back of the truck??

If you do a 2/4 rear will be about 3/4 inch higher than the front. I would get helper bags if its that big of a issue if your loading.

The belltech/kw kit 21008 (front coilovers rear double adjustable shocks) runs $1650 SHIPPED to canada. So you know stylinconcepts has them for 1630 shipped to the lower 48 states not to canada
http://www.stylintrucks.com/part.aspx?partid=525619


If you see it anywhere for cheaper pm me a link ill beat anyones prices.

The rear 4 inch kit rk3209-4 would be djm and that one would be $400 shipped to canada and same thing if you see it for cheaper shoot me a link ill beat anyones prices

Thank you,
This is my everyday ride, and gets around 45000 miles a year.
And yes, I do load it sometimes and I did it up to 2200 lbs (this is just 35 bags of cement mix which is not a lot).
That is why I am trying not to compromise on the functionality and ready to go to higher expense to make it right, and another issue is angle of driveshafts (front/rear).

i have 3 street racing customers that tow there racecars almost every weekend to the street races out there that have the newer (08 up) f150s. 2 of them are 4x4s and with a 2/4 drop they have no issues towing their cars.

even if you load it up with 2200 pounds with the shorter bumpstops you will be fine. As much as it squats now will be the same when you load it up later nothing changes since your using the same leafs. 45k a year is no problem because on the belltech set up there is a lifetime warranty.

So, what do you think about this?

$600 i would do this

front belltech drop struts with new rear shocks
rear djm 4 inch kit

So you would have brand new shocks all around (front is a lowering strut) and rear djm 4 inch lowering kit. The rear shocks are shorter and i spec for the drop.

The stock struts on these trucks ARE NOT made for lowering springs. On the customers trucks I do i see the stock struts go out in about 5-7 k miles. The belltech front drop struts are made to be lowered on and keep your ride very good.

Anything else just hollar AND like i allways say on all the forums i advertise on and locally if you find the kit anywhere for cheaper ill beat anyones prices.
