Question F-250 Leveling kit

Hello folks. looking to get some reliable info. I just acquired a 2003 F250 Crew Cab. I saw on Ebay a 3" leveling kit (Newton lift)which consist of a spring pack for a very reasonable price. I heard that spring packs give u a very bouncy/choppy ride. Is this true? Does anyone have a spring pack type of lift that can answer this? Thanks and God Bless!!!!

I bought a kit off of ebay and the price and quality was good. I was planing on doing the install myself but did not have the right tools. A spring compressor helps a TON. Oh and still has the same ride.

He has leaf springs. Also, I was able to get my spacers in no problem without compressors. Just a matter of getting the frame high enough off thr ground so I could lower the axle enough.

2" Leveling Kit

I had a 2" Rough Country add-a-leaf leveling kit installed on my 2004 F250 SRW lariat.... I got it for about 100 bucks on ebay... had it professionally installed at a local 4x4 shop... it tightened the front end up a little bit but not enough to complain about and it looks awesome.

Aren't those "springs packs" pretty much like installing blocks? Years ago they were illegal - maybe it's changed since then.

I dont know about install... I didnt do it myself.... they only had the truck for a couple hours so it couldnt have been that bad.... as far as the legality.... I have not seen anything about them being illegal.... of course it is always easier to ask for forgiveness than for permission!
