What lift/level kit works best?

I have a stock 06 F-250 CCLB, and as of now it has the 17" wheels with 265/60/17 tires. Its completely stock. I just bought the 06-07 Ford OEM 20" wheels and plan on running 35" tires. My question is what size lift or leveling kit and what kind would you guys recommend? Thanks

I had an 06 that started off w/the 2.5"spacer in the front and was running 35"s on stock 18" wheels. The people I know are now running the spacer that goes on the bottom side of the front spring, they seem to work better w/the factory front end. Mine was on the top of the spring and I had no problems w/rubbing or anything else. That will look good on your truck w/those 20"s!
