Need help with front leveling......F250SD

I'm looking for the "hat style" coil spring spacers that go on top of the front coil springs in 2" height for 2010 F250 4x4. There are many suspension companies out there that make this style in 2.5 inch height but I am searching for the same type in 2".

Anyone know someone who manufactures these?

When you get a 2in leveling kit do you need to add a different rear block? or does the truck sit nice and level? I want to do the same to clear 33's but I don't want the rear end sagging either.

I am going to use the 2" in the front and add new icon 1" blocks in the rear to get a level stance.

I have found the 2" top coil spring spacers at Top Gun Customs. They have them but just do not show up on their website. Under 60 bucks and shipping.

Perfect, if you can send a picture when you're done! I'd love to see it. Btw the truck in your avatar is identical to mine except I'm going with a 2008. Guess I'll need to get updated radiator hoses etc, but I'll get it all bullet proofed!

Does a leveling kit throw the steering out of whack? What kind of shims and track bar do you recommend?

Yes it does.. your drag link will have to be adjusted and if u dont use and adj track bar your axle will be off center and dog leg while your truck tracks down the road.

X2 on adj track bar, castor cams, shocks, and a front end alignment.... if u want to trial and error u can adjust the drag link your self as the lift will only effect the steering wheel placement and not toe in and out... but if u dont use castor cams it will lessen your positive castor to the bottom of fords specs which is very undesirable.

A 2" top spacer may need longer shocks or extensions, some have a bottom spacer that lets you reuse the shocks.

We have the Castor shims and adj track bar's needed.

PM if I can help.
