It's all opinions.

You won't be disappointed with the Bilstiens.

I would recommend an F350 block unless you like a nose high look.

I prefer front spacers that bolt to the axle instead of the top of the spring. Mostly for asthetics.

You might as well go on ebay spend 20 bucks and buy a set that includes two 2 inch billet alluminum spacers that bolt to the axle and spring sets in stock perch....easy install with normal shop tools, then spend your money on f350 blocks and u bolts (unless you already have a 350). 150 bucks should just about pay for the 350 blocks and u bolts from ford. With just a 2 inch level on the front of my 06 250 ccsb it sits 1 inch high in the front, when I buy my 350 blocks it should sit 3/4 inch higher in the rear which should looks pretty good.

That kit only supplies spacers and shocks. With 2.5" of lift, you need other supporting suspension components. 2.5 puts every thing out of alignment. With ONLY SPACERS, you should not get any bigger than 2". If you get more than that, get a kit with more supporting parts. Really nice shocks, are not going to cut it.

Just some info on level kits..you must use a adj track bar to recenter the axle as the axle will shift 1"+ with a 2.5" level kit. use of just a drop bracket or spacers will change the steering angles which will introduce bump steer unless you have a equal droped Pitman arm.
You also must add Castor shims or do a 4 link kit to regain your lost Castor from the level kit..its Geometry.

F250 will need a taller rear blocks and Ubolts unless you like the pre-runner look

Longer shocks would be advised over shock extensions..

If you deside on a complete system I would look at Pure performance or a Icon kit, let me know..we are a dealer for both.
