1.5" lift springs with Bilstein shocks

1.5" 05-07 Ford Super Duty F250/F350 Performance Leveling Lift Kit with 5100 Series Bilstein Shocks @Top Gun Customz

Does anyone have this kit? if so how is it?

Will I need a track bar bracket or pitman arm bracket?

Or any other brackets to center the steering wheel or make it ride good?

I'm wanting to run. 295/60/20 which are 34.4" tall and 12.3" wide. These are only .3" taller and 1.4" wider than the stock tires.

any help is appreciated.

You will need castor shims and a adj track bar..so may be easyer but more $$ to get a complete kit..with all 4 shocks..you shouldn't mix stockers with Bilsteins.

That kit has all 4 shocks and then just front springs.

what are castor shims? who makes a good adj track bar? Is the track bar the one that centers the steering wheel?

Thanks

Castor shims fit on the top Ball joint..you can do yourself if you get them with a Kit.

The Drag link is what you adjust to fix the steering wheel.

Track bar recenters the axle after the lift as it shifts 3/4-1" per 2" of lift..its geometry..

Pure Performance and Icon both make quality track bars.

We have the parts to do a lift correctly the first time.
