ONLY OBS 1994-1997 INPUT PLEASE!!! LEVELING KITS

I'm starting a new thread because I have yet to get an answer... Does ANYBODY know where to buy a leveling kit for a 1994-1997 F350 4X4!!! I have got allot of information for every other vehicle besides what I'm asking for. I have also searched everywhere and everybody has given me websites that only sell lift kits. I DO NOT WANT A LIFT KIT!!! I need to know what will make my truck level, and what to buy. I also need to know if it will require anything extra to get it aligned. That is it... If there is no such-a-thing out there, then please let me know. If you have not done this or all you have done is a lift kit, or a leveling kit on a different model truck, then PLEASE TO NOT RESPOND TO THIS!!! Every thread I have read is allot of information on different models, but not a 1994-1997 F350 4X4. I do not care about ride quality at this point. I just want to know what it will take to get a level truck. Thanks, I hope.

ORU or SKY - RSK kit is the best way to go BUT if you don't give a sh!t about the ride then call jack-it and get a add-a-leaf spring.

Can you give me a website, part number, ect! I see allot of people saying this, but just putting in ORU or SKY - RSK kit in google doesn't help at all... If I went the add-a-leaf route, what else is needed? Is there anything I need for alignment? I NEED DETAILS!!!

OK I'll try and answer your questions in detail as I've been doing some digging on the same subject.

RSK or reverse shackle kit will move the front shackles to the rear of the springs and lift the front of the truck at least 3" . here's a link for the RSK kit

It seems like you know what an add-a-leaf is, there is some question as to wether or not you need a longer trac-bar, but there are plenty of people that have done them without it.

Mini spring pack - you will need the trac-bar for this one. You're gonna want to contact caryt here on the forums, he can hook you up with what you need. I know that there isn't a particular part# for our OBS trucks, but you can use a kit for the early 99's. The u-bolts are a slightly bigger diameter but just drill out the plates and install.

Hope this answers your questions.

BTW nice truck what size tires are you running.

If you want an Add-a-Leaf i used Lift Kits, Suspension Leveling Kit, Truck Body Lift Kits & Sway Bars for Chevy, Dodge Ram, Ford, Toyota Truck & Jeep 4x4 there is a thing right on the left hand side that says Add-a-leafs, then u pick your year, and there u go. i think it was like 80bucks? i dont remember. All i did was throw mine on and everything was good, but its a stiffer ride, and you might need your Caster Camber aligned, but otherwise its all good

PLEASE READ TOP!!! ONLY 1994-1997 F350! Putting a leveling kit is different on a F250. This is why at the top it says F350's. I'm trying to find out information on F350's since I read in a thousand other threads that there is some difference.
