If you want great quality and great ride, Icon's leveling kit is the way to go!

Icon makes a good product. Some on here running Ready Lift. It all depends on how much $ you want to spend and if you want to go with aftermarket suspension upgrades or not.

Isn't it 700 dollars? I mean for just a leavling kit I think that is way too much. I got mine from Top Gunz Custom for 70 bucks which all it is, is a 2.5 inch spacer and it rides the same as factory. Now I haven't installed it yet on my 2010 truck but I did have the same spacer on my 08 and it rode the same when stock height.

It isn't just a leveling kit. It comes with new coils and shocks as well. Great package for the price in my opinion

ehhh...825? That's just too much for my wallet especially if I'm happy with my 70 dollar spacers. But I do like their 4.5 inch kit, I would pay 1700 for that.

I'm interested in doing something like the ready lift kit but I was also thinking I wanted to run the bilstein shocks I have heard so many good things about. Is this possible? What vendor would be good to order from ? Thanks.

Here you go. 2.5" 08-09 Ford F250/F350 Super Duty 4x4 Budget Lift Kit with Bilstein Shocks - Top Gun Customz

This is what I had on my last truck and loved it. I kept the shocks but left the spacer on my old truck. But the shocks made the truck ride a little stiffer but the handling improve by a bunch.
