X rated leaf springs

Hey I have an e99 f250 and was wondering if I do the x rated leaf spring upgrade will I need to do anything else. From what I have read this should lift the front end up about level with the back on an e99 since we have the bigger rear blocks but since it is lifting it that much will I need an adj track bar or anything?

Thanks

It will lift the front 1.5-2" and if your axle is centered now it will shift 1/2-3/4" We have 2 types of adj bars..DOM steel and Billet Aluminum. Check your shocks to make sure that you have enough travel left. PM me if I can help.

I am going to be replacing the shocks as well so is there something I should look for in the shocks that I am going to buy. And you are saying I will need the adj bar right?

Well I sell and recomened Bilsteins and adj track bars and can get you the correct ones for your X code swap.
I like things perfect, I don't like axles offset, running doglegged and side loading the spring and shackle bushings so IMO its required. Some will disagree and say none of that matters..only you can decide whats important to you.
