E99 leveling kit choices? Please help

So I needed new tires and I went out and bought some today. Well I got a 285-70/17 because thats what was on the other set of wheels that came with my truck but the tread was about gone. The wheels are dc1 17x10s. They dont really stick past the feander. I put one on the truck before new tires and they cleared good. But after compairing the my 265s to the new 285 there is a huge difference. I think I am going to run into a clearance problem. So I am asking you guys what I should go with. I kinda like those mini spring packs because they keep a good ride. <My truck is a daily driver tow a trailer on the weekends in the summer and dont wheel with this one.

Depending on the amount of lift you want the best riding kits will be either hanger kits or a mini spring pack..limited to 2.5"
Hangers for a level kit 2-3"
Mini spring packs can reuse stock length shocks, hangers need longer.
Both kits require a adj track bar to recenter your axle.

We have all, PM if we can help.

Have you measured to see what height you need?
