LEVELING KIT

you guys have any opinions or ideas about leving kits or add a leafs. i want to get my truck to sit level, it sags a good amount in the front, probably 2-2.5 inches. I was just wondering it you guys know about any good kits and where to find them. i have add a leafs that are about a foot and a half long iwth a 2.5 or 3 inch arch that came in a lift kit for a 77 f250. you think those will work or would i be better off buying a kit for my 99 F350.? All help is appreciated!!!

my truck came with some sort of lift on the front, no idea what, who, where or when....but it sits up there pretty nicely....a little stiff, but hey it's a 250!

is there a way to determine what is on my rig?

sorry for the hijack (no pun intended!)

Check out Rough Country's website.
I just installed a kit from them a couple weeks ago, and so far the ride is better than I expected and the truck sits nice.
Kit is reasonable for what you get.

I heard that blocks in the front is a BIG NO way to dangerous. Is this true. I am making my own shackles to lift my f250. The problem with a add a leaf that I am finding out is if you need 2.5 in add a leaf is not going to get you no more then 1.5 so you are still going to sag.

For one blocks introduce spring wrap, which could be an issue under extreme braking.
Blocks shift around and are generally unstable but the major concerns are braking and steering effect.. Blocks in the front are just not a smart way to go.
I use Sky manufactoring high steer kit in my toyota and they were awesome to deal with and make great products, not to mention there is no sales tax in their neck of the woods.. check them out.
