Who has a leveling kit that goes under the spring? It inserts under the front springs between the lower perch and the axle. Thanks

I went with the ones that go above the spring and switched rather quickly to the progressive rate full spring. You will definitely need the adjustable trac bar and the caster shims. I didn't at first and had some issues with tire scrubbing.

I have the under the spring spacer. Works great for me.

You will need the caster shims, and adjustable track bar regardless of what leveling kit you use.

Track bar :64031 - '05 - '11 Ford Super Duty Adjustable Pan Rod Bar with Bearing - ICON Vehicle Dynamics

I order my caster shims from Truck Toyz performance, but they are an Icon Vehicle Dynamics part.

I have the spacers on the top of the spring and hate them. They ended up bowing my springs outward. I tried a set of spring replacements from Skyjacker, but after the install, my truck didn't sit any higher than stock, so I sent them back. I'll get some Icons someday . The trac bar is not really necessary according to the alignment guy I talked to. It's more for looks than anything. I can deal with the axle being forced to the drivers side until I can afford an adjustable one. The caster cams ar probably necessary, but I'l find out how far they can adjust the OE ones tomorrow after the alignment
