A good brand lift kit will come with a longer track bar and the brackets to hook it up. And it will also come with the correct size drop pitman arm for your steering box.

05 F250 FX4 Lariat, SCT Livewire, 155cc injectors, Gryphon FICM tuner, ARP studs, MTW Stage 2 Turbo, Riff Raff boots, Warren Built trans, PMF traction bars ,4 inch straight pipe, Sinister EGR delete, S&B CAI, N-fab bars, level kit, 5% limo tint, 35 Toyos and 20s, Recon smoked everything, Harley headlights, 5k HID's, Camlocker toolbox, lots more

Check out icon's track bar they have 2 options here is one

64031 - 2005 - Current Super Duty F250 / F350 Adjustable Pan Rod Track Bar with Bearing - ICON Vehicle Dynamics

I think they are the only company to offer a track bar for a lift that big, if you already have a drop bracket then any track bar will work. Pmf also makes an adjustable track bar but only up to 4.5" IIRC.

I don't think there are any alternatives for a steering box other than oem, if you are having problems with turning do a ps flush, if it is slack check drag link and tie rod joints first.

2006 F250 Lariat CCSB
Comp Turbo 64/88 compounds
Warren 285/100
ODAWG ported intake
R&R rods, mahle pistons, stage 2 colt cam
Built Trans

Your trac bar needs to be relocated by a the upper mount being replaced by a drop mount, as others mentioned, would of came in a kit. If your piecing a setup together, call truck toys performance 888-PROTOYZ, they can get you an individual piece. As for steering, only option for upgrades to stock is "redhead" steer gear which uses needle bearings for tighter tolerances, or full hydro steering upgrade- which is real nice - but spendy!

As Jetjock stated, you should have a drop trackbar bracket in conjunction with a drop pitman arm already. If so, both of our types of track bars will work for you. We also have individual components available if you need anything in particular. If you have any questions, feel free to pm or call us anytime!
