Rough Country leveling kit??

I was wondering if anyone had any experience, or opinions good or bad with the rough country leveling kit on a 99 to 04 f250 with a ps? I am considering using it due to the fact that my drivers side front spring seems to have sagged in a big way. This kit comes with a complete set of front springs, urethane bushings, new u-bolts, and front shocks. It would also be nice to get the front end a up a bit as long as it doesn't end up being higher then the rear. (not a very attractive stance in my opinion)
Thanks in advance

First off



To POWERSTROKE.ORG



And second off,

I have heard some good things about them, and if it is a little higher, you can just change the block you already have in the rear to one that will level it up.

First off thanks for the hospitality.
Good point about the rear blocks, I suppose all trucks are different to a point, so you just need to go one step at a time to get the look your looking for.

I will post what stroketechintraining told me, he just put the Single leaf Rough Country leveling kit on the other day on his CC F-250 Short Box 4x4. He said it made it look better, the front at the fender was 42" and the back was 43". He said he got about 2.5" of lift in the front with it, he is running 285/75/16. Just FYI Also said that it rode a little rougher, he is going to try a new shock up front. But he said it was def worth it.

That’s good news. I suppose that is the add-a-leaf kit. For what it’s worth, I spoke with Rough Country directly on the phone today. They were quite willing to answer questions. They said their spring was actually rated 10% over stock capacity but it wasn't a stiffer ride. This was due to it being a 5 leaf stack as apposed to the stock 2 leaf configurations. He also said on rare occasions you could end up with a squat in the rear but that would depend on how hard the truck has been used, but normally it wasn't a problem. Their fix was like you said, change the blocks in the rear.

Yeah, that was just the single add a leaf up front. Well, get it and put it in and take some pics so I can decide which one I want

Actually, I think the add a leaf set up may be Tuff Country. I checked the Rough County web site and they only list the full spring for the 99 to 04. Either way, I will let you know what I deciede to do and post the results.
