What else would I need with a leveling kit?

If I put a 2.5-3" leveling kit on my truck what else would I need to change? I know I'd need shocks. What else? Brake lines? Also what if I put a say 3" shackle kit with 2.5 springs? Then what else would I need to add?

You would be better off with a kit..custom for what your doing rather than try to piece meal everything

You need drop links, shocks, pitman arm, track bar drop track bracket, adj track bar, U bolts and blocks.

What do I need U bolts and blocks for on a leveling kit? I'd be going with a 2.5 new spring pack most likely.

I meant that later down the line. My bad I wasnt clear. I was thinking springs for now then later down the line put some shackles on and put blocks in the rear. Just wondering what I'd need with a new spring pack besides shocks?

Ok..longer shocks and a adj track bar..but then when you add hangers you still may need longer shocks, drop pitman arm, longer sway bar links, rear block and U bolts.
