IMO no, its just a spacer. You would also need longer shocks, castor shims and a adj track bar. IMO best to spend the money for a quality kit thats complete. If I can help please PM.

As far as spacer kits are concerned, they are just as good as anyone else. "Daystar" is a bushing manufacturer and builds quality componenets...

Also we always will sell these kits with a adj track bar as its required unless you don't care if your truck doglegs. F250's also come with a taller rear block so the truck won't be noise high.

You don't have to have an adjustable trac bar. You could also get a drop bracket for the trac bar. Readylift makes a pretty impressive cast piece I had on my truck until I installed a 7'' lift. With my 7'' lift I do not have an adjustable trac bar, just a drop bracket and my truck does NOT dogleg.

Yes either will work IF made correctly, a drop bracket is only correct for the lift it was made for..out side that lift the axle will be shifted..its Geometry can't fight science.

I never was arguing with science. I was simply trying to inform BlackBeauty that the information you are giving is false. Adjustable trac bar is NOT required.
