I'd go with the Icon Vehicle Dynamics or Bilstein BTS.


With a F-250 you'll need larger rear blocks and u-bolts (included in the Icon link, need to add them in the "Configure" screen of the Bilstein).

I would recommend the adjustable trac bar with either system to assure that the front axle remains centered under the truck. Not "necessary" but a very nice upgrade to get. Available in the "Configure" screen of each system.

Bilstein BTS 2.25 Inch Leveling System - 2005-2008 Superduty 4wd - 2008 F250/F350 SRW 4wd - Truck Toyz Store

Icon Vehicle Dynamics 2005-2008 FSD F250 2.5 inch Leveling System - 2008 F250/F350 SRW 4wd - Truck Toyz Store

2.5" Leveling Kit W/ 35" Tires

I just put a 2.5" Leveling kit w/ 35" Toyo's on my 07. Toyo and Nitto are the same company so yours should fit.They do rub on the plastic on a sharp turn but they look good. Rough Country makes a 3" coil lift that comes with shocks for around $450.00.

Superlift

Superlift makes a quick install leveling kit that claims you can run 37's with no problems.
