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.

Why do you like full throttles better?

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.
