Ride & Drive
With the Skyjacker Z-link installed, our F-250 definitely rode better than it ever did with leaf springs. And there's very little vehicle roll even without the front sway bar installed. The Z-link kit gives the truck a better approach angle, but it does lose ground clearance at the lower arms when compared to the leaf springs.
To dial our truck in, we need to adjust the ride height to get more suspension travel up front. Right now the shocks bottom easily as there is only 3 1/2 inches of uptravel. It would be nice if Skyjacker offered a remote-reservoir shock that would give the suspension more travel with the same overall shock length.
