Ford Diesel Leveling System - 05-16

Level the front of your truck with a system that delivers 50% more front suspension travel than the stock Super Duty. The industries best coils paired with extended travel shocks increase control and comfort while an adjustable track bar, caster shims and brake line tabs correct the front geometry; all without breaking the bank.

The Leveling System was designed for people seeking a leveled vehicle with more performance and ride quality than a generic spacer lift. The IFP Bilstein 5100 shocks build quality is unmatched for their price point offer a nice boost in ride quality and carry a lifetime warranty through Bilstein.

Your truck will sit 2.5” higher in the front with 50% more suspension travel than the factory platform thanks to the taller, lighter rate coil springs. Front Bilstein 5100 shocks increase the suspension control while the brake line tabs ensure you can make the most of your newfound suspension down-travel. The axle is recentered thanks to the included Adjustable Track Bar and the Caster Shims round off the off the front end geometry while improving on the stock handling.

As this system does not include anything for the rear, factory towing and payload capacity are maintained. This is an entry level system that only requires an upgrade to one of our many signature tuned shock packages and an Add-a-Pack or full progressive leaf spring pack to be converted to one of the higher-end systems.

The Leveling System will level the front of the truck to the rear on Super Duties equipped with the factory, 3-5/8” rear block. Super Duties equipped with a 2" tall block from the factory will require the factory 3-5/8" tall Block to achieve a leveled stance. Part Number: 7C3Z-5598-HB, 7C3Z-5598-JB

Wheel and Tire:
On our 2.5” Ford Systems, we recommend 17”-18” wheels, no more than 9” wide with 5.5” of backspacing with Carli Fabricated Radius Arms or 5” Backspace with factory arms; 5” will require a bit more trimming. Tires, 37x12.5” will fit with some trimming; 35” will likely fit without trimming. The more rubber, the better the small bump compliance will be at proper inflation pressures. The ride will firm up as you go larger in wheel diameter. For more details, see our article on wheel and tire selection and tire pressures:
