Which leveling kit? Spacer on top or on bottom?

Im wanting to add 2" to my 6" Procomp Lift I have already. Im confused by the spacers that some mount on top and some on bottom. Any which one better or safer I should say? IN all my Jeeps, Fords I have had before they all go on top. Also whats the easiest way to install them? I know with Jeeps I used to undue the trackbar, drag link, shocks and spring mounts and lower the axle and compress springs if necessary. Is this the same concept? I also plan on making my own adj. track bar

I am running the 2.5 inch spacers under the lower spring pad. I have not had any issues. A friend of mine has the spacers on top of the spring and they squeak and make allot of noise. When I installed the lowers I just took loose the lower bolt for the shocks and let it drop down. Took longer to balance my tires than to install the level kit.

Really? Didnt realize it was that simple with Jeeps, the draglink would always bind up as well as you always had to compress the coils. Didnt realize it was that simple for these trucks. Ive always done my own lifts but this one came lifted and my last F250 was leaf sprung. Which kit did you go with?
