leveling kit questions

So I just ordered a 2013 f350, I'm starting to buy stuff for it and was looking at leveling kits, I already purchased a new top gun customz adjustable track bar and was looking at Readylifts leveling kit and it says...

Ford changed the front suspension on the new 2011-2012 F350 trucks and in order to level the truck the front sway bar frame mounts must be spaced downward. ReadyLift designed new sway bar mount spacers just for this reason, something you won't get with other kits

Can I just run the 2.5" spacers and track bar or do I need all the other stuff for the sway bar? Thanks!

You could also use new longer sway bar links.

That sway bar is a good one..its a Pure Performance adj bar.

You should always adjust for a lift by addressing the sway bar links...along with the loss of castor..so you will need castor shims.

I'd look at getting a spring level kit with longer shocks..better ride quality by getting more travel and better coils and shocks..

The Icon springs would work well for a plow as they are just a tad stiffer than others but being progressive you won't get the full 2.5" when your plowing

I recently installed a Stage 2 kit from Ready Lift and have been happy with it. I've found that it rides just like it did stock, maybe even a tad better. Yes, there are indeed better functioning, better riding options out there but for someone on a budget like myself the Ready Lift was a good choice. I've been happy with it and would recommend it to others.

That's what I've been leaning towards, I wonder if there's any way to get the kit without the track bar bracket since I have an adjustable one coming

The front coil spacers, shock extension spacers, rear blocks, and new u bolts. I think that's about it.
