Hey, not sure if you ordered anything already but... I just put on Pro Comp 22210 2" level springs, Zone adjustable track bar, and Bilstein 5100 shocks. I couldn't be happier. The ride is firm and controlled without being jarring at all. I gained noticeable travel and flex, too. Mine is a 2000 7.3 F350 so pretty much the same as yours but mine is 1" taller in back. The small extra cost is worth it in my opinion. To answer your question (instead of trying to sell you stuff) Yes, there are drawbacks to a hanger shackle kit. It rotates your axle backward slightly which changes the angle that your front drive shaft comes into your front differential (probably not a big deal). You will have "hangers" hanging down noticeably behind your wheels (not a big deal). You will still have your old, stock leaf springs (a big deal to me). If your front leaf springs are less than an inch from the bump stops then they are sagging. I would say that instead of spending money patching up the old stuff, you could spend a bit more and get brand new stuff.
