    Assuming you have an F350 with a straight Dana 60 front end (not an F250 w/ the Dana 50 IFS)? The F250 is a little more complicated to install up front. The rears are the same.

    I did like the Skyjacker suspension back in the day (of my 1992 F250).

    Here's a link to the install instructions for an F250 or F350 lift.

    Most of the kits from the major suspension companies are the same. (Skyjacker, superlift, fabtech, and rancho)

    If you have a Dana 60 front end i would very highly recomend the SKY or offroad unlimited reverse shackle kit with stock super duty springs. It will will you a ride so much better than stock. I loved that about the front end of my old truck. It made the truck as far as im concerned. It was well worth the money spent. for the axle upgrade and such.

    after looking at pics you already have the RSK so i would recommend Setting it up to run SD springs and get some DEAVER springs for a SD as they are supposed to be the best.

    Forgot about the shackle flip (to rear)

    Nets you about 4" and improves the ride.
