I am sitting on a 2.5" leveling kit and the front is still lower than the rear by just a little. I think a 3.5" kit might get it dead level. Also, I am running the stock 18" wheels and tires.

I went with a Custom Diesel kit from Amazon. It did come with shock extensions but not brake line relocation brackets. I wasn't ready to buy shocks at the time and I wish I would have thought to buy a kit with the relocation brackets. I ended up drilling and tapping new mounting holes for the brake lines, so no big deal. This kit goes on top of the spring and some others go under it. I don't think one is better than the other, but maybe.

i have the ready lift 2.5 with track bar bracket. 2.5 puts you perfectly level but looks nose high due to the wheel wells. and if i hook anything up to the rear it is nose high when pulling. I have the camper package and the rear was real high. looks like it takes 2 inches to suck up the slack for the add a leafs take over. i would imagine ford made it so it rides level when pulling so adding a couple inches in the front is how high it is when pulling.[IMG][/IMG]

My 350 sits almost perfect stock i think you're rite 2.5 will be too much, I think you will need to use a SRW 350 block and then a 2.5 inch spring in the front and i think it would be perfect and you will be 2 inches higher all the way around

Just an fyi, if you go with new front coils it doesn't always add 2.5" of lift. They are designed to level the front of the truck with either a factory f350 block or a 4" block. So if your truck is only 1" higher in the back than the front and you change out the coils with 2.5" leveling coils its not going to make your truck 2.5" higher than it is now. If your truck is again 1" higher in the back and you add a 2.5" spacer up front then yes it will be taller in the front than the back.
