'11 E-150 2"ish lift

So, I've got an E-150 (2011) with a wheelchair conversion , has already a 2.5" body lift to accommodate floor cut/drop.


Currently I am running stock size (LT225/75/16) Kumho AT-51's but would like to get a lil more tire under there. Tires now are 29" and I'd like to see some 32/33's under it.



I'm thinking 1.5-2" lift will be enough. Is there any Coils I can run up front to achieve this, E-250/350's maybe. Truck is heavier than stock as well due to drop floor (plate) and lift.

I've been reading threads here but haven't found anything definite. I did learn there is a limit to how much we lift via spring/spacer due to amount of available Camber adjustment without over stressing Ball Joints.


Rear plan is Blocks or hit local spring shop and have a leaf added or rebuild stack.


Also don't know how to source longer shocks if need be. Local autopart stores go off make/model/VIN and don't have any way to xreference.


Any help would be great.

Oh, I did find these searching around.

Not sure they're a great way to go, feel iffy about the stud extenders. Price seems a bit much too compared to a set of coils.

What size is the bolt that connects the Radius arm to the I-beam?
If it's 3/4x10, I can help you put together a 2" front kit. You will need different front shocks because the factory ones will be too short after you put on 2" up front.
I've been putting 2" spacers on the front of E350's for roughly $150 and that includes shocks.

That sounds a good deal. Mine is an E-150 if that at all matters.

Being in a chair I can't get a measure easy but if my brother is around tomorrow I'll get him to measure.


Any though on E-250/350 springs? I could get local or from wreckers.
Shipping shocks/springs to me here in Ontario, Canada might get pricey.

I did moog cc880s on my e350 with 7.3, gave me 1.5" lift up front. the cc880 is for the gas motors which should give similar lift and is a progressive coil so the ride improves as well.

Sounds like a good option.

Do they fit 2011 though? Listings say 92-97
