Leveling kit???????

Who has installed one and what brand? What all did it consist of in the kit? Any suggestions on a kit to purchase?

I have a 2006, F250 King Ranch Crew cab, 4wd. Installed the Rancho 2.5" level kit (RS6510B), Kit comes with 2 new Radius arms, 2 front coil springs Rancho (RS80116B) and 4 RS 9000XL shocks. Once I leveled the truck just was not satisfied with how it seemed to sit on the rear so I ordered 2 rear add-a-leaf springs, for me this works great. Also I have Nitto Terra Grapplers 325/65/R18. I truly like the look. My plan was to install a 4" lift kit until I put one on my son's truck, just to big for me. I have a friend who just installed the Pro Comp donuts and got new shocks, his looks great as well. I guess it depends on how much you want to spend

they are not hard to do.. they are basically just a coil spacer.... you can do it in your driveway with a few simple hand tools and a jack/jack stands.... we can set you guys up with a good simple setup if you guys are interested

I got my 2.5" aluminum under spring spacer off ebay for $20. This is much better than the cheap foam spacer that goes on the top of the spring.

Softer ride on the big bumps because the truck does not hit the bump stops as easy. And looks better with it level. Good quality

I have a 3" Icon leveling kit on my 04 F350. It is a hanger system and included new shocks all the way around. Also threw in an adjustable pan rod and dual steering stabilizer kit and it looks awesome and handles/drives even better. It wasn't cheap but I feel like I did it right and the results are everything I hoped for and more.
