The HD pkg doesn't mean much,actually it doesn't mean anything other than you have a 97

But you can go with a single add-a leaf or with a mini pack. either one will give you 1.5-2"

Looking for Blue 40-20-40 seats. PM me !!!!!!!

It really depends on if you have a 4x4 or 4x2. The 250 4x4 had a TTB Dana 50front that can't easily be lifted due to the way it bolts to the crossmember under the engine. Your best bet if you have that axle is to either remove the rear block or swap the D50 for a D60.

Here is my 95 250 without the rear block on stock tires.


Same truck with a D60 and 35" tires.

F-250 HD leveling kit

Don't mean to high jack the thread, but what is the best brand for "add a leaf" and how hard are they to install? Could I do it myself with basic tools? (I know it will need to be realigned)

Can anyone comment on the quality and ride of this mod?
