6 inch lift to Leveling kit; parts

I have two main questions.
1. I have a 6in pro comp lift on my 2000 f250 4x4, and I have 2 2.5 leveling leaf springs with shocks and i have the back stock springs. So im wondering what else I need and if I can use anything from the 6inch lift? Or will i just need 4 new U bolts, two back shocks? will I need new shackles?

2. what looks best with the 2.5 leveling kit? I was thinking 33x12.5 or 35x12.5?

Re: 6 inch lift to Leveling kit; parts

You'll need a stock pitman arm, track bar & bracket or the zone adjustable bar (still uses the stock bracket).. new u-bolts for the front & rear. I've heard you can re-use them, but I'd be cautious on our size trucks.. stock rear blocks, unless they stacked.. or if they went all spring/shackle, you'll need new rear springs/shackles. I think I got it all. Maybe someone else can chime in with something I might have missed..

May be easier grabbing parts from a local salvage yard and building up. Or find someone local to swap.
