leveling kit advice

I have been looking around to put a leveling kit on my 05 350 4x4 and i found one at summit racing for under 150. I have plans to put on probably a 6 up front a 4 on the rear later in the next year or so. So i just wanted to know if you guys think this is a good kit for the money. http://http://store.summitracing.com...5&autoview=sku I dont do any hardcore off roading or anything just my casual drives around town smoking the rice burners. And if not if there is another cheaper but yet still quality leveling kit.

thanks steve

well to be honest it really bothers me that the front sits lower i think it takes away from the lines of the truck. So if i can pick a decent cheap one up for under 200 then i can hopefully live with it so when the next time i have to buy tires i can go ahead with the lift at the same time. dropping 150 not that big of a deal for something that i plan on keeping on my truck for a year.

I'd go with that kit from Raul. I'm running the same kit from Pro-comp and love it. It was a simple one person install. Took only a couple of hours by myself. You love it, it does do wonders for the attitude and look of the truck...

I will get you some more pix if you would like, mine is a 05 F-350 Dually with the spacers and you won't be disappointed. Mine was a gift, but that price Raul has looks pretty appealing...Shoot me a PM if you have any questions...

thanks Rescuediver, but actually last night i found a picture of some random person truck on the internet with a leveling kit with the same tires im running which really helped me make up my mind, but i am really glad to hear something good about the leveling kit so i wont be dissappointed now. Now all i have to do it wait until tomorrow when i have court date to see if my reckless ops sticks. I mean honestly find me one person in the world who hasn't done a burnout in a parking lot and give that man a lollipop
