Levelling kits...do I want/need one?

Sure...my tail end is a bit closer to the ground than the front, but is this a big deal?

I'm looking at some levelling kits here at: Ford F250 Leveling Kit - Best Leveling Kits for Ford F250 Super Duty Trucks - 2WD Rear & Front Leveling Kit Reviews - XLT & PowerStroke - 1968 - 2013 and they're not too expensive...are these good enough for the PSD or do I have to go to something HD?
Which one of these would YOU choose?

97 F250 PSD...6637 Filter upgrade...3" Diamond Eye DP...DFuser EBPV eliminator...Improved "Blue" CPS...

If you dont tow or put heavy loads in the bed a lot i would get a set of F-350 blocks and put em under the back. If you tow a lot i would get the firestone airbag helper kit and mount them so when they are inflated you gain a couple inches of lift.

Pardon my ignorance..."F-350 blocks"?
