Need Leveling Kit advice

I have an 03 F250 with a 6.0 in it and want to put a leveling kit on it. I have been looking around and there are so many options out there and I need some advice on what to use. Any suggestions would help. Thanks.

I'm wanting to do the same with mine. I'm thinking a shackle/spring hanger lift with an adjustable track bar to keep the front axle centered.

Does Procomp offer a kit with the spring hangers too? Is there an advantage to doing it that way? Either way, please PM me some prices.

Your other option is to go with a spring pack. DR makes a 2 inch and Tuff country makes a 2.5 inch. Not trying to take anything away from Raul's business, but these are a little less expensive then the hanger kits and they shouldn't sag after a year like an add a leaf.
