#4675818 - 02/23/18 07:14 PM Front coil springs - 2000 F150 4x2 ?

I have a 2000 F150,4x2 ,ext cab. I just recently had all 4 shocks replaced with Monroe gas magnum shocks.

I also got installed maxtrac 2 inch rear lowering shackles,and max trac rear hangers. I did this to make the rear of my truck level to the front. Now after having this doing it has a slight "bulldog" look,where the rear is now a little bit lower than the front.

Can I have installed these front coil springs and still keep my monroe shocks on,or do i have to get shorter front shocks?

I ask this because this guy with maxtrac suspension told me that if I where to install the rear shackles,and hangers I would have to use shorter shocks. Well when my mechanic did the install the shackles,and hangers when on just fine with the monroe shocks.

I think if I buy these and have them installed it will even everything more level. Please advise. Thanks!

I wouldn't lower the rear if you tow much. I know 1800 lbs gross isn't a lot,
but even 100 lbs of tongue weight probably put you "level" before.
