leveling kit for f250

So I'm going to get new tires in the next month or so and I was thinking about getting a leveling kit so I can put 285s on. It's a 97 F250 CC SB 4x4 HD with the dana 50 ttb. I really don't have much suspension/front end knowledge and wanted to check with folks for some recommendations before I got something that's going to give me a bad ride or sloppy steering. I've been reading a bit about the different kinds and I was kind of leaning toward just doing the add a leaf. Who's got a leveling kit out there for this truck and how do you like it? Also what do you have to do after the leveling kit, i.e. alignment, new track bar, etc. Thanks for the input!

i installed add aleafs in mine and it rides good and sits pretty level, i had to buy new camber bushings to correct my alignment and it wasnt very funny installing them.

where do you get the camber bushings? Can I just get a front end shop to do that for me?
