leveling kit questions..

I am new to the ford game, so bare with me haha. I am coming from an 05 dodge 1 ton, and when you level those you can run into a mess a things, "death wobble" being my main concern. I leveled my old truck and ended up basically rebuilding my entire front end and adding an adjustable track bar . Do you run into these problems on 2008 f250?? Or can i simply add say a 2 inch spacer and level it out (not too concerned with ride quality) but very concerned with those issues above- thanks guys

I had a 2.5 inch spacer on my 08 (gasser truck) and I have the same 2.5 spacer on my 2010 diesel truck and it rides the same and drives the same. You will have to have someone make an adjustment to the steering wheel alignment cause on both of my truck the steering wheel is off by just a bit to the left. Nothing wrong with the alignment just the steering wheel. And what causes that I have no idea. But other then that it's been great. Here is a pic of the 2010 f-350. Now the 350's already comes with 4 inch blocks in the rear which I suggest you do that to your 250 or the front will sit higher then the rear.

You will end up with the same problems if you don't get a complete kit with a way of correcting the axle being offset from the lift and the loss of Castor..A adj track bar and castor shims or 4 link arms..
