which Leveling kit should i get?

Looking for a good leveling kit for my 2006 F250 FX4. Doesn't have to be the best (expensive) just something that gets the job done and is quality/reliable. Which one do you guys think? and where can i get it? Thanks!

if i were to put a F350 block in the rear, would that lift it up past stock height? and if i went that route, what would i have to get for the front?

how much of a rake do you have now? best way to figure it out is just measure from the top of the tire to the bottom of the fender... and see how much you would need to level i out...

you can only go so far before you have to go with a full suspension kit or a higher end leveling kit that will have the rest of the parts you need to run it safely

FORD F250 SUPER DUTY LEVELING LIFT KIT 2.5" 2005-2008 : eBay Motors (item 250450162836 end time Apr-18-10 13:16:12 PDT)

this is the link to the one i put on my truck. my truck is a 350 so i didn't need the rear blcoks but i'm guessing you would. the kit was really straight forward to put in. the instructions are failry easy to follow. i'm not sure how much lift you really wanted, (this one is 2.5 inches.) if you wanted to run the 295/56/r20 tires this is the ticket, (or at least it was on my '06) good luck. -JRB

thanks and that looks good! i dont want to run to big of tires, maybe a 285 or 295 series.

I measured mine, and my front is about 1.5" off from the rear. So if i were to get a 2.5" front kit, i would have to get a F350 block for the rear i assume, right? and where can i find a actual OEM f350 rear block w/o spending a arm and a leg?
