    N2.0 Shocks. Improve the ride of your Ford F-150 truck with a set of Rough Country N2.0 shocks all around the vehicle. They rely on Nitrogen for enhanced performance and more reliable shock absorption. The shocks are designed to replace the stock shocks while offering proper function with the lifted vehicle.

    Powder Coated Steel Lift Spindles. This Rough Country Lift Kit comes with a pair of lift spindles to raise up the front of the vehicle and help it maintain its original geometry. The Spindles are crafted from powder coated steel and made for strength and durability.

    Steel 3" Blocks. A set of rear lift blocks are included to help get the 3"" lift at the back of your Ford F-150. These blocks are composed of steel that's been powder coated and they are fastened by a set of included U-bolts to raise up the truck's leaf springs effectively.

    Extensive Install with Complete Instructions. Installation takes between four and six hours to complete, and requires replacing all the shocks, mounting blocks under the leaf springs, and isntalling the spindles up front on the vehicle. It's a tough procedure and best left to professionals.

    Will this fit on my SINGLE CAB 2002 f-150 Base model 4.2L v6 standard truck there's not a slot for single cabs

    • The Rough Country 3 in. Leveling Lift Kit w/ Shocks will fit on all 1997 - 2003 RWD F-150's regardless of cab size.

    i have a 2003 f150 supercrew and could i fit 305/75/17 with this kit? if not what is the max size i could possibly do. i have 275/60/17 right now on my truck. also if not what lift would i need to get 35's on my truck?

    • This kit will only allow for a 305/75 without trimming. You will need to get at least a 4" lift to fit 35" tires which I have posted a link below to one.

    Would i be able to run 285-65-20 with this kit?

    • The Rough Country 3 in. levelinglift kit provides clearance for up to 31 x 10.50" tires. 285/65/R20 would be too large for this, measuring in at nearly 35 x 11.5".

    i am very interested for this kit on my truck. will the 3" body lift work good with this kit as well? Thanks.

    • Yes, you would be able to use this kit with a 3" body lift.

    Will the spindles in this kit work with coil spring spacers or a 2.5in lift coil spring

    • The spindles included with the Rough Country 3 in. Leveling Lift Kit are not designed to be used in conjunction with other components to give a larger lift, as this will throw off the front suspension geometry.

      great ride, great look , great feel

      premium quality product kit, highly recommend for anyone wanting to get rid of that factory rake stance, now i already had bigger wheels and tires on my truck so really have a 5 inch lift because of my set up. however i really like this product and now i can pull slightly larger loads due to the 1.5 inch block under the leaf springs, i don't squat as low. bottom line - great product!

      2001 Ford F-150 supercrew

      Overall it's a great lift. I got more than I expected to. The shocks that came with it seemed like they're good quality to me. One downside is that the can't use the factory brake shield. And where the ABS mounts has no threads so we had to file it out to get a 1/4 inch nut and bolt to keep it on

      Beefy spindles

      Installed on a 2001 f150 supercrew because one of the original shaft on a knuckle broke off install this in about 8 hrs by my self the only thing I didn't like is that the spot to put the ABS sensor doesn't have place to screw it to the spindle (they give you a zip tie to put it on there) which I think is not the best way to secure the sensor on there other than that its a good look now on my truck.
