I bought my ProComp 2.5" leveling kit from Pat at Discount Power Parts. I'd highly recommend them!

i had leafs up front on my 01 f.350 5.4l. i purchased a pair of superlift add a leafs from a local speed shop for $150 to correct my nose dive problem also to help with the use of the 800lb.+ boss snowplow. they claimed to lift the truck 1-2 inches. i barley got an inch out of them and they made the truck ride like a lifted truck, very stiff. so they really werent worth the ride sacrifice. they supported the plow sufficiently but i only use the plow for a few winter storms heres in pa. the install was fairley easy, but those add a leafs probably wont give you what you're looking for. not sure about other ford owners luck with them but thats my experience.

ive got a 99 with 33s on it right now. i too can fit 35s in the back no problem but they rub just a bit turnin real hard. im lookin at a kit by rough country. it comes with new front leaf springs new front u bolts and two new shocks. my front springs are really bad worn out and i dont kno about you guys but they arent but two springs in the pack this kits has a few more. i have no idea about the ride or anything but supposedly this kit picks it up 2.5" its just under $300 too. me and a friend of mine put a add-a-leaf on his 03 ranch. minor trimming on the left side fixed the slight rub. didnt look bad either made the springs look newer too.
