Newbie Lift and suspension questions

I just bought yesterday a 2007 F350 Crewcab 4x4. It has 18" stock wheels with the crapy continental tires I am thinking of putting on a 2" leveling kit. The shop that I have talked to recommends the Tuff Country kit with is just the device that I guess goes on top of the shock tower. Along with that I would at a minimun need the new front shocks to handle the two inches, again they recomment Tuff County.

They claim I would not need to add caster cams etc.

I really don't know much about this. I bought the truck to put a camper on the back and tow a jeep or boat, so I know I need new "E" load tires. With the 2" lift I would upsize the tires as much as I could for height on the 18 inch rims

So I guess my questions is what do you guys think about the Tuff Country leveling kit and shocks or any other recommendations in the same price range

Has anyone done the Tuff Country lift?, does it require an add a leaf in the rear?

Also what airbags for the rear end would you recommend as I need to add those for the camper

Thanks for any advice

They lie, you need castor ships to get at least back to stock castor. You will need a adj track bar or a drop bracket or your axle will shift 1/2-3/4". many good kits available..
