Need some F350 knowledge...

I've got an 06 F350 that is currently sitting at stock hight (butt in the air). I want to get a leveling kit, one so it doesn't look stupid, and two so I can get new tires under there (BFG AT 285/65R20 ... 34.7")
I've seen everything from the spacers that go under the coil, to the donahoe kits with new coils and shocks, etc.
My questions are:
1. Will a 2.5" kit level out an F350?
2. How big a difference is the new coil vs. a spacer?

06 F350 Harley Edition
Crew Cab Long Box
Auto Meter Ultra-Lite Gauges
MBRP T304 SS 4" Turbo Back
AFE Stage II intake
B&W Turnover Gooseneck Hitch
Xtang Revolution Tonneau Cover
Line-X w/ removable Carpet Bed Kit
2.5" Leveling Kit
BFG A/T KO 285/65/20R
Recon Smoked Cab and Tail Lights

If you ain't CAV, you ain't sh&#!!!

Spacers are easy and cheap. They work pretty well for a couple of inches.

Send a message via AIM to Raul@Stealth Automotive
the amount of rake you have are specific for your truck... best bet is to measure your own truck to find out how much you need to level it off
