F350 leveling kit install

Why does Ford build their trucks, Super Dutys anyways, with the front end lower than the rear? New at this so not sure how to attach the images or move what I added in the Albums, so here goes nothing...

i think most pickups sit high in the rear, so when they're loaded the ass end sits more level. if they were already level before the load went in, the head lights would be in the trees.

When I hook up my 5th wheel it hardly moves, unlike my old 2500 Chevy. The rear end sat high and uneven with my 5th wheel. I lifted the front by 2" and now it sits completly level. Makes sense though with what you say. Thanks for the reply.

x2, they are built like that so when they are fully loaded it will sit level.

Load your pics in something like photobucket, and then use the address inbetween the img tags and it'll show the pic

Corey, if you go to the pics in your album, there should be a bb code at the bottom of each one. just right click on that and select copy. then click paste in your post and you should have it.

otherwise i can copy them to my comp and post them for you...

Some kits recommend shocks and others don't. When I put mine in I put in 4 new shocks as well.
