The Zone Offroad leveling kit is somewhere around $240 and comes with an adjustable trac-bar/ long leafs/ mini leaf pack/ etc. Probably the best ~2.5" leveling kit you're going to find.

I just put it on mine, and the ride stayed pretty close to the same.

No pics, sorry.

This what I used: Ford Superduty 99-04 Leveling Kit - Sky's Off-road Design

It retains the factory ride. It also has a tab to bolt the bracket on for the 05-07 front conversion.

Did you have to get the adjustable track bar and new shocks when you installed it?

No on the track bar. But I did eventually replace my shocks with bilstein 5125's

Depending on the amount of lift you want the best riding kits will be either hanger kits or a mini spring pack..limited to 2.5"
Hangers for a level kit 2-3"
Mini spring packs can reuse stock length shocks, hangers need longer.
Both kits require a adj track bar to recenter your axle.

We have all, PM if we can help.

I went with a 2.5 add a leaf from skyjacker... my friend had it on his truck until he lifted it... then it ended up collecting dust in his garage, it was hard to beat the price!! Install was easy used stock trac bar and shocks. I do have a pic somewhere but its on a reg cab.
