Sky Manufacturing's 3" 99-04 Ford Super Duty 4x4 leveling/hanger kit.
What it is: A 3 inch bolt on leveling hanger kit for the front suspension on the 99-04 Ford Super Duty 4x4 F-250, F-350 and Excursion vehicles.
Kit is designed to be as simple as possible to install, simply replaces smaller weaker factory parts. Uses Factory Hardware. Will lift the front of the vehicle 3" to compensate for settled springs and heavy winch bumpers, etc. Simply remove factory components, reuse existing hardware, reinstall new longer leaf hangers.
Can be combined with lifted springs, steering, shock, drive line mods will need to accommodate total desired lift.
Shackles are CNC laser cut 3/8ths plate, CNC formed. Hangers are 1/4 inch laser cut CNC formed plate, mig welded and gusseted, includes brackets for bumper brace. Kit comes in black powder coat to help prevent rust. Sky Manufacturing's 3" 99-04 Ford Super Duty 4x4 leveling/hanger kit.
A new addition to the kit is the option of a hanger brace kit, which fits 2", 3" and 4.5" kits. Picture of brace shown not to actual size! Simple bolt on brace can be added anytime if desired. Purpose of the brace is to help eliminate possible frame stretch over many 1000's of miles. Basically peace of mind!Brace is constructed of 1.250 wall tube with 1/2 inch hiem joints and 1/4" bolt in brackets that fit over the leaf spring bolt.
The pan hard bar option.
The pan hard bar is what keeps the axle side to side located under the truck. It follows the drag link for the steering. It is located on a bracket between the shock mount and steering box on the driver side of the vehicle and runs across to the passenger side mount on the axle housing below the leaf spring.
I would recommend the adjustable pan hard bar when adding a leveling kit to the truck.
