Yes you need a adj track bar. You can reuse your stock length shocks but IMO a 2" hanger kit will get you a better ride quality as you get more compression travel.

Either way we have both types and all parts needed..PM me if I can help.

I have a 2 3/4 spring pack i did not need an adjustable track bar , however, any higher and it would have been required. i did not notice much difference in ride quality. i need to get a set of f350 rear blocks to lift the rear about 1 inch and make it level, took it to the alignment shop and the said it was good to go no changes needed. got lucky i guess.

Thanks for the pm Cary and thanks for the response, haven't done much shopping lately just paid for a tranny rebuild so ouch.... I'm still undecided on what I want to run, I heard about a company called Newton and they seem to make decent stuff but I'm sure there's an opinion on them as well.... Hoody what size wheel and tires are you running and what brand of leveling kit? Can you post some pics of your truck?

Any lift will shift the axle its 8th grade geometry. What happens when you don't use a adj track bar is the springs will shift on the bushings to get the axle back to where the track bar is holding it.

35" need a 3" kit if you don't want them to rub and wider aftermarket rims .

I would not use Newton...
