leveling coils and shocks

I'm planning on putting leveling coils on my '96 f150. So far all I've managed to find online are leveling kits that use spacers. Does anyone know of somewhere that has a good price on the actual coils? Also, I'm wondering about shocks. Someone recommended the Gabriel XD's to me as a good medium priced shock. Does anyone have experience with these or can you recommend any others? Thank you for any help.

Re: leveling coils and shocks

I am running the Rancho leveling coils on my truck, but pretty much any suspension manufacturer should make them. I know Rough Country sells them for $130 a pair, which is what I payed for mine. Also remember that after you put them on you WILL NEED an alignment and camber audjustment.

As far as shocks go, I Have never heard of Gabriel, just get some Rancho 5000s and be done with it.

Re: leveling coils and shocks

They wont work without axle pivot drop brackets. With the 2 inch coils the camber is audjusted as far as it will go. With the three inchers the angle would be too high for the camber to compensate.
