To livel a F250 correctly will take over $1k..you will want new progressive springs, adj track bar, castor shims, Quality shocks , rear blocks and U bolts.

We have kits but nothing under $1k.

Something like this shouldn't be too bad. It doesn't get much better than Icon, and you can get an adjustable trac bar and 4" blocks and u-bolt kit for a few hundred and end just over a grand

Can you run Bilstein or Fox shocks with that Icon kit?

Yes! You can contact TGC and customize the kit however you want it and they can get you just what you want. You can probably get that kit with bilstein or fox shocks for about the same price. Add a trac bar and blocks and u-bolt kit and your good to go.
