looking for an 08 350 leveling kit, help please

I've been doing some searching and have talked personally with some guys where I live about leveling kits for my super duty. One guy that I know has a 250 that put a ready lift on his truck and loved it and he highly recommended it to me. I priced one of their 2.5" kits out at a local truck supply store with the rear lift blocks and the track bar relocator bracket for $499 today. Which leveling kit should I look into? Any ones to stay away from? I want at least a 2.5 or maybe a little bigger.

It all depends on your goal and your budget and your goals. Most leveling kits make the truck ride the same as, if not worse than stock, overextend your shocks and put more stress on your front end components including your track bar as it's now too short.

I run the 2.5" Carli suspension leveling kit with King shocks, an adjustable track bar and a rear mini pack. It's more expensive that a puck-style spacer but the ride quality is compliant and very comfortable on the road while controled with great bottom out resistance off-road. This is one of our more expensive systems but we'll be offering a bilstein 5100 series leveling kit with 2.5" linear rate leveling springs, caster cam, adjustable track bar, and new front shocks for under $900 so we'll have options for everyone!

Here's a link to a thread with pictures and a bit more information for you!
