are there any other options other than add-a-leafs? it'd be real easy to go with blocks or lift shackles, but i havent found any anywhere. whats out there?

when i leveled my truck i used mini springs, u can find them on ebay for $120. You will also need either a lowered trac bar bracket, or an adjustable trac bar.

The best leveling kit for an OBS 250 is a Dana 60. Center of my front fender sits @ 39.5" and rear sits @ 40". It takes care of the problematic TTB 50 and levels the truck. Best of both worlds

Doesn't apply he has a TTB.

TTB..as stated save your $$ till you can do a D60 swap.

The D60 is the solid axle found in F350s. The easiest is to find a '95 - '97 with the same gear ratio and get all brackets, trac bar, sway bar etc.

Thanks guys.

Ill be putting the Dana 60 swap on the list as well. I was hoping for something cheap and easy right now.

Ideally id like to take care of the engine mods first, so thats the focus at the moment.
