X-Codes level an e99 F350?

Anyone know how close to level x-code front springs would bring an e99 F350 dually 4x4?

Thing has monster rake right now. Of course I am concerned that with the front raised up to match the rear that I will be tempted to step up to 255/85s.

Im interested in this as well, I have a SRW early 99 that has a monster rake and looking to level it out and maybe go 4" blocks out back if needed. Will the X-code springs bolt right on?

Did you have any issues using your factory trac-bar? Or did you have to buy an adjustable trac-bar?

Thanks!

I'm not sure, I bought the truck used with a leveling kit and I added the x-code springs cause the stockers were sagging bad!!!

yes, if going from stock then have to have one, only can go up about 1in before needing one...

i have a 99 250 with a 350 rear suspension and an extra fulle leaf in front (eyes cut off). It sits pretty level, maybe 1-2' rake.

By the 350 suspension do you just mean 4" blocks?

Have any pics?

Does anyone know if you can use your factory U-bolts if you just go with the X-code springs, or do you have to buy aftermarket?
