You need a adj track bar since your 2" lift will move the axle 1/2-3/4" to the right. Just a FYI but a add a leaf will ride stiffer than a mini spring kit or a hanger lift.

If he has a F350 he well but a F250 doesn't need one.

With just 2 inches the trac bar will be fine I have done it on both 250-350's 1999-04 and works fine

As far as an alignment goes the only thing the lift will effect is the steering wheel will be turned a little to one side instead of straight but is easy to correct just adjust the drag-link which is the one connected to the pitman arm that will correct it and save you money at the alignment shop

Looking for 05-07 front end with Harley Lights
