Thanks for the comments guys, and Summers I absolutley love those huge superduties lowered the deep rear wheels on them, I know a lot of people say they arent practical but how many people actually take those huge trucks off roading and need the height?

Hi Rev I think I payed around 380 for the catracs. I just called them directly, nice guys to deal with, and you give them the specs of your truck and give them a few measurements. If you do order some though, requests that they make the holes in the plates that hold the leaf springs on the rear axle larger..... I had to bore out my holes and it was a pain.

Great looking truck! Our coowner just sold his 01 F350, loved the way that thing looked and drove!

Looking forward to that thread. This is a great looking ride.

Is Chassis Tech shackles with the built in zerk fittings a good choice to drop the rear 2"??

Sure but any shackle will do. They all achieve the same thing. The zerk fitting isnt necessary but a nice option to prolong bushing life

Sure have but many years ago. I only bought one time because the quality just wasn't there. Ive bagged many trucks and cars with few lifted thrown in. I know what quality suspension products are. In my case they were less than great.

Do you?

I used them for over 100K on a truck that hauled boats (28' pontoon) and a 26' travel trailer without a problem. So what was the problems you encountered with Chassis Tech? I like facts, not hear say.

I bought a set of manifold valves for a project trying to save a little cash and they looked good when they showed up. The leaked and I ended up sending them back to get another set that leaked. then I bought SMC valves like I should have the first go round.
