Help me level my f250

Looking to level my harley f250. There's so many different options between leveling kits and springs and replacing shocks and shackles and blocks and getting dual steering stabilizers etc. Im just looking for a leveled look that will ride as close to factory as possible, I don't do any off-roading so durability as far as that goes isn't a priority. I just want the correct complete level for a good price. thanks

man honestly, you could do a spacer ( keeps factory ride quality ), install an adjustable trackbar, and run a good replacement shock. spend more time measuring what you want before you purchase. i have parked my trucks on level groung , taken measurements, and lifted with a jack to take some pics, just to make sure it was what i was expecting.

ANY THNG THAT INVOLVES, moving the shock mount on the axle farther from the frame mount requires a longer shock.

You need Castor shims, adj track bar and either longer shocks or a shock pin extension.

If you are just looking to level the cheapest way, remove the rear block. At most you'll need 4 new u-bolts.

Like I stated I do not need any off road capabilities. I just want to keep the ride as smooth as stock getting by with the least, guys are posting big money leveling kits for like $1500. I originally thought all I would need is the 1.5 spacer.
