Default 2017 Super Duty Leveling Kit Pics

Since ive read every thread on all the ford/powerstroke forums, figured id try here. What level are you running and did you notice a big difference in ride etc?

I have this kit and will be putting it on in the morning if i feel like tackling it. Just trying to make up my mind if I want it leveled or not. Want to keep the factory coils for now, will probably replace with carli or equivalent around 30k if i still have the truck then.

Have the 2.5 inch pro comp. Not sure how much ride changed because put rims and 35 inch mt. Now rides like a truck with big mud grip's.

I'm going with a 2.5 Icon with a one inch spacer and one inch taller block in the rear.



This is the stance it will have once it's done.

I put the ready lift 2.5" and track bar relocation bracket on mine. Also put on 20x10 wheels with some 35" Nitto Ridge Grapplers. Also used forscan to adjust my TPMS threshold down to 45 PSI so I'm running 45-50 PSI in my tires now. Rides as smooth as factory, if not a tad smoother.
And my tires are 12 ply.

You're doing the ICON coils? I'm considering switching to either theirs or Carli coils.
Nothing wrong with my spacers. Just like to think the coils would be better.

Have the same kit - no complaints. I will however upgrade the shocks soon - looking at the Rancho 9000s or possibly Fox...

Well after much contemplation, ive decided to leave the truck stock lol! Hooked a 30 ft gooseneck with 100hp jd on her today and she was loaded down! If i didnt tow so much or so heavy id throw it on. My kit is for sale if anyone wants it, its what I posted in the first link... still unopened . Please post more pics though as maybe further on down the line ill level with airbags.

I honestly have no suspension history, have pulled/built plenty of diesel motors etc, but never really wanted to jack with the factory geometry. This is such a tough decision since I dont have any past experiences to go off of.
