I'm looking for a soft coil that would give about 6" lift, for those that don't know my truck is a 78 f150. Any ideas people

4" tj lift springs, might be too soft but they are really really long

I would try wild horses they have nice springs

I'm running a 6" coil from BDS - working pretty good for me

wildhorse coils are sick,, thats what ive got and im scared to drive my truck on the road, there too soft in my opinion(and thats under the bronco 2, there ment for an eb, 3.5" lift progressive rate)

make sure you go with an old style coil if you have the chance, ment for a straight axle. the ttb has added leverage so the coils are usually 1.5x stiffer or so, i forget exactly how much stiffer, but some people can run them with no problems

6" BDS are good just under 200 bucks for them also...

procomp has a good selection and they post their heights and spring rates.

the superflex 6" from Jeff'sBroncoGraveyard get rave reviews
they have a spring rate in the 200# range
which is crazy soft, I think the 460# superlifts I have are 'cadillac' soft for daily driving

I might try the 6" coils out back but I think that is too light for my taste up front
