another leveling kit question please

I have searched and found a couple of answers but am looking for more. On my f150 I added the spacer to the top of the front coil spring and an add a leaf to the rear. All worked perfect. I want to do another add a leaf to the rear of my 250 to help squat when towing, but get confused on about what works up front. If i get a 2.5" spacer for the front which is better one that goes on top or bottom? If a spacer is added do I have to have something else to avoid death wobble? Are the billet spacers ok? I dont want to spend a boat load on a leveling kit

A 2.5" spacer will be a top mount. It is a good idea to get an adjustable track bar or track bar drop bracket for proper axle alignment. Spacers are ok, but new springs and shocks are a much better way to go for better ride and handling. Below is a link to a 2.5" leveling kit. It is listed for F350 only since it does not include 4" rear blocks which would be necessary to level out an F250. Since you are going to use an add-a-leaf, this kit will be perfect for your application.
