Leveling Kit

Hey i recently bought an 02 f-250 thats got 35's on them. It has no lift on it but i was looking at it the other day and saw how it had a slight angle downward on the front end and stuck up a little in the back, (like most fords do). Should i look into a leveling kit? if so, what are some of the best ones? Brand? price? Also, will it mess with my suspension or anything like that?? This is the first diesal ive owned and dont know much about it. Any help would be much appreciated.

yeah take the tire off on one side and see if theres a spring pack in here or look at the shackles and hangers to see if theyre dropped down abit.

Little to nun. Sometimes changeing the angles of the way the truck sits will but not enough to know. The tires are what kill the mpg's.
