2.5" leveling kit questions

lots of questions about lifting my 2009 f250 crew cab...... I've read good things about this ready lift
Ford F250 Super Duty SST Hybrid Lift Kit: 2008-2010, 4WD Only - 2.5"/2.0"R

and that would come with 5" rear blocks for the rear to level my entire truck out but it still uses the factory shocks...... 575$$$

also i called a local off road shop and can get a pro comp 2.5" kit which does front and back lift plus new shocks for the front for 800$$$ installed

my question is which lift to go with the thought of newer shocks and everything installed for a couple hundred bucks more sounds good to me.

also do i need an adjustable trac bar with this lift as neither of the lifts come with them? plan on running 37" tires with this lift.

any other routes or recommendations as far as lift suggestions or links to find a better lift on ebay would be helpful. trying to do the lift on a budget if possible

I have the Readylift kit and I think it's an excellent product. The kit includes shock extension brackets for the front so you do not necessarily NEED new front shocks with the Readylift kit.

The readylift also comes with the Trac bar re-location bracket so you do not need an adjustable trac bar with that kit.

I don't know much about the pro comp kit but I believe that the readylift kit is the only one that comes with the trac bar bracket. If you get a kit that does not include the trac bar bracket, then you will need an adjustable trac bar (unless you don't mind your axle shifted to the left).

Also, no problems with running the 37's. They will rub at full lock, but for how good the truck looks, it's worth it!

Since you're trying to keep a budget, it would be a good idea to keep room in the budget for a dual steering stabilizer as well.

Good luck!
