i believe a leveling kit moves the axle .75 of an inch in one direction. a trac bar would move it back into the center.

I needed it with my 2.5" kit. Got the Icon adjustable.

No matter what height you get, you're going to move the suspension over. You may be able to squeeze it together, but do you really want to do that?

I didn't get the adjustable trac bar and figured screw it. Now, I have pretty severe scrubbing on the outer edge of my passenger side front tire. Should have listened to DCSpecial from TruckToyz.... He tried to warn me but I was being cheap. Now, I just bought it, but couldn't install it this past weekend since I didn't have time. It's going on the truck this weekend for sure!!!

PS. Do yourself a HUGE favor and get it NOW!!!!

IMO I would go with ICON one. I got my lift on and then drove it to the alignment place with the stock track bar and I could barely make left turns due to rubbing. When they aligned my truck I just had them put it on for me. I got a great deal on ICON stuff from joeylevet@gmail.com, but TruckToyz is geat or Cary Towery ctperformanceinc@yahoo.com they are all good for your needs.

I would NEVER buy trac bar spacers. It severely compromises the integrity of the front end. If anything, I would run the stock bar and deal with the rubbing until I could spring for an adjustable trac bar.
