Default Lifts

ive found im not going to be able to throw my lift on my truck for about 2 years due to some money issues but ive been wondering if putting in blocks with just a small bit bigger tires would still be good for now? later on im going to suspension lift with 33s but should i do blocks with just big enough tires? i cant decide if so what blocks should i get and tires for offroading and daily driving

you could do a junkyard lift to fit 33s if you wanted.

TTB ford F150 coils for the front will net 4-5" on your truck (blame the 4banger) try to find some really really worn ones in hopes for 3-4"

for the rear make a bastard pack find any 2.5" wide leaf and stack with yours the ones i built for my buddy used 2 of my ranger leafs and a procomp AAL netted 5" in the rear.

did all the work on his with maybe $100 into the lift. some people on here will say you need new camber bushings we just adjusted his it was close to stock alignment specs.

over 4 inches you're gonna need ttb drop brackets AND radius arm drop brackets to put everything back into spec

into perfect spec but it is very drivable using the stock arms and adjusting the camber.

Not using the 4x4 it isnt. Your caster would be so out your driveshaft would bind. Over 4 inches and your balljoints would be at such a drastic angle they wouldnt last 3 months on the road. You need to drop the radius arms AND the ttb arms over four inches.
