Which leveling kit?

06' F-250 King Ranch FX4: what size leveling spacers and what's the best kit to buy? I don't plan on going any bigger than stock size all terrain tires or anything like that.

Thanks for any input and/or advice you may have...

Very happy with the Bilstein 2.25" BTS leveling kit. Ride is a bit more firm but still smooth - Progressive rate coils and 5100 series shocks. I have F350 blocks in the rear so overall the entire truck sits a bit taller. Still stock size tires with no intentions to go any bigger.

A lot depends on which springs you have and how worn out your rear leafs are.

I've got 4800lb front springs, a 1.5" readylift leveling kit and when I first installed it my rear was about 1/2" higher. Now a few years later the truck sits nearly level.

Soon I am going to try a 1" PMF spacer and 6000lb front springs.

I got my 2.5" coil spacers that came with shock extentions from custom-diesel.com. I did all the work myself in my garage at home with regular tools. My F350 sits perfectly level with a stout appearance. The shock extentions made it nice because I didnt have to purchase longer shocks. The whole thing took me about an hour and 15 mins. I paid $85(plus $13 for shipping) and the kit is all steel. Very pleased with how it turned out. I still have stock wheels and tires (about 33" tires) but will soon go to 35".

2.5" leveling kit

I went with the 2.5" coil spring spacer from custom-diesel.com for my 2005 F350 and it turned out awesome. Leveled the truck perfectly and it came with shock extensions so you dont have to buy longer shocks. Everything is made of steel and is made in America. It took about an hour and 15 mins to do myself in my garage at home with regular hand tools. I would recommend this to everyone.
