Need help with ordering parts for leveling!!!

I have been reading allot on here and I have seen allot of people saying you need a adjustable track bar, or a track bar drop braket. I can't find either anywhere! I see them sold in kits, but not just the part I need. Does anybody know the part number and where I can buy them. All I want is 1.5" add-a-leafs and either the drop braket or new track bar.

Haven't a lot of people just done the aal and NOT swapped out the track bar. This is the first time I've heard this. Anyone with the aal on an F-350 please chime in.

The four wheel drive shop ive been to mentioned nothing about raising the trac bar but my front end is IFS so Its probably different with a straight axle.

Did you buy a leveling kit, or a lift kit??? I only want a leveling kit. I only want what is needed to level the truck. I'm not interested in lifting the front and back.

OK I bought a rough country leveling kit. 2.5" came with all new springs, shocks, and u bolts. It shifted my truck axle to the left. So I will need the adjustable track bar

I also helped a buddy but on 2" add a leafs under the front of his 04 250 KR and it did not affect the alignment of the axle.

Hope this helps
