leveling kit...

So I am going to be putting a leveling kit on my early 99 F250 with 35's. What should I expect as far as rubbing? The kit is a 2.5 BDS kit with Fox shox all the way around. Tires will be 315x70R17 BFG AT's. Thanks everyone.

I am not 100% sure but I am pretty sure that you will have no rubbing issues except maybe on the leaf springs at full turn. Hopefully someone else can confirm this.

Just make sure you are using a relocation trac bar bracket, a adjustable trac bar, or better yet, both and you will be fine with 35's. Some will say you don't need these parts, but you will be shifting the front end 1/2 to 3/4" off center, and may have bump steer. I will be using the kit from member CaryT when I finally am ready to do this mod. Of course get a proper alignment when done.

Thanks for the replies. And as for as the bracket or trac bar do you know of anyone whom makes this for and early 99?
