Levelling kit and ball joints?

I bought my 03 with some sort of levelling kit. I can't tell even what part pushes the front end up. I am a 4x4 guru so I would notice something, but everything looks stock. No block or extra leaf...?

Either way, do the levelling kits on the leaf spring suspensions wear out ball joints? My steering stabilizer ball joint is shot, and seems like I have another going out on the passenger side.

00' F250 CCSB Lariat 4x4 - 197k.

285 BFG ATs, 6637 Intake.

Steering stabilizer ball joint? Are you referring to the bushings? The ball joints are the attachment points between the steering knuckles and the axle housings. These do not see a different load with or without a lift. It is only larger tires which place additional static load on the ball joints.
