I would go with the zone kit due to the adjustable track bar

i would never buy a zone kit, my friend recently bought a 4in lift kit from them for his superduty and it was missing many parts, and they were not very helpful when he was trying to get the missing parts.

There are several places u can get a zone kit. I'm sure if u get it from a shop you can check with them to make sure the kit is complete or deal with them on replacing it. The kit looks good for the price. I mean it's not the greatest trac bar, bit it is adjustable and will do the trick, imo.

There is another option, you're located about 100 miles from Johnson City TN. There is a guy Ricky at Spring Service the put in a helper spring, and a right beefy one i might add. He removed both of my front springs, re-arched them to make sure they were in shape and put a heck of a spring in there, then he did put new u bolts on as well. The only thing i had to do was get an extension block for the track bar. Ricky charged me $300.00 and hed did it in about an hour and a half. I sit there and watched them do it. The extension for the track bar was about $100.00. I have included a pic of the bracket and if you look at my springs it is the 3rd spring from the top or bottom (the one inthe middle) it is quite a bit larger than the rest. Well worth it.
