2" Level kit on 2010 F350?

Looking at leveling my 2010 F350 Crew Cab 4x4 (Lariat). Been researching and seems that 2" spacers for the coil springs would be right. I picked up the Zone Offroad spacers for $100 and now was told I may need longer front shocks and maybe trackbar? Anyone that has done this, can you tell me from your experience what I really need? Also, I assume I will need to get front end alignment after install?

I bought a newton leveling kit for 70 bux because it came with spacers for the track bar to recenter the axle. If you just out spacers in the coils, the axle will be shifted slightly one way. I have a 1.5" on mine and I didn't have to get new shocks. Not sure on 2" though. It's good to get an alignment to double check nothing got messed up when doing the kit.

Mine has 2.5 inch spacers. You should get new shocks so that they are the right length or you could damage the shocks in the long run by over extending them. As for the track bar, your axel will be off center. You can use spacers as travis said (I have the newton spacers) or you could get a whole new track bar. I would get an alignment. 9/10 times your alignment will be slightly off after a lift install.

Wow. This is starting to add up. Leveling kit was cheap but adding new track bar, shocks and alignment is few hundred $$. I want to do it right so guess I better holdoff and get more $

I plan to get alignment but didn't realize I need shocks and to buy a adjustable track bar. Track bar seems pretty costly for what it is. :'(

some companies sell a shock extender bracket that bolts on. worked great for my dads 2012 f350. the axle moved just slightly but nothing we were worried bout and went on down the road. truck drives just fine!

Check out Jason at newton lifts. His leveling kits come with shock extenders if needed, track bar spacers for the track bar bracket with all corrosion resistant hardware and the spacers are aluminum. And they are pretty straight forward to install. His 2" kit is like 70 or 75 bux. Google newton lifts

Start with a complete level kit from a company that get you all needed...more $ to start but ...The bitterness of poor quality lingers long after the sweetness of low cost is forgotten
