To develop this kit we worked closely with the people that matter the most, you guys! This was the first kit on the market to offer a complete bolt on RSK (reverse shackle kit) to use the Superduty springs on the 1992-97 OBS (old body style) 4x4 trucks that requires no frame or bumper modifications.
With this kit, you can bolt on our conversion hangers using existing holes in your frame and clear all factory bumper mounts and components. For trucks that are wanting to install an intercooler, we have designed the kit with optional bolt locations to allow additional clearance for most intercoolers end tanks. For this installation configuration, you will need to drill two additional 1/2" holes per side.
The installation of this RSK kit will provide a noticeable improvement in ride quality. This is accomplished through the use of a longer Superduty spring and the relocation of the shackle to the rear of the spring. With that change, the truck is no longer fighting against itself when it hits bumps on the road. Instead, you will have a truck the drives and handles like a 1999-2004 F-250/350.
The kit is available in 3 different lift heights. This is the lift amount of the kit itself. Please keep in mind that depending on what code of Superduty springs are used, you may have additional lift amount. The kit comes complete with the front hangers and rear shackles and all needed assembly hardware. Superduty springs and spring eyelet bolts are not included.
The kit comes standard with a smooth square crossbar. This ties the two front hangers together and adds rigidity to the frame itself. The standard kits' crossbar is 1/8" wall thickness. If you choose to upgrade to HD crossbar, tow hooks or a receiver hitch, we also upgrade the crossbar to 1/4" wall.If you are using a 1999-2004 Superduty axle, you must choose the SD Axle configuration so that the mounting configuration is correct!
THIS KIT IS DESIGNED TO WORK WITH A BOXED FRAME RAIL. IF YOU HAVE AN OPEN FRAME RAIL, ADDITIONAL INSTALLATION MODIFICATIONS AND WELDING IS REQUIRED.
THESE WILL REUSE THE OEM LEAF HANGER UNDER THE BODY MOUNT THAT COME ON THE 4X4 CHASSIS. IF THE TRUCK IS A 2WD, YOU WILL NEED TO SOURCE THE SHACKLE PIVOT BRACKETS OR PUCHASE OUR ADJUSTABLE REPLACEMENTS IN ADDITION TO THIS KIT.
