Zone leveling kit ?

think I have decided to go with this leveling kit on my 2002 f350 cc long bed. like the fact that the mini spring has a much longer leaf on top to help with load. also it come with an adjustable trac bar. just wondering who has this on their truck and how long it has been on their truck? any problems with it? also, are there any vendors on here that sell zone? thanks

Any BDS wholesale distributor will sell Zone also.

It is a nice kit for the money. We stock them and sell/install a ton of them on leaf spring Super Duty's. On your F-350 it should be just about perfect. That kit can give some trucks upwards of 3-3/12" of lift, but if you have the big rear block from the factory you should be all set.

Consider throwing some Bilstein 5100's on the front and it will ride great


for a leaf spring truck....

I have a question. Sorry about the high jack but this deals with the kit.

I have a e99 and it says on the site it will not work with my trick because of track bar bolt size? Is there a way to make this work? I really don't wanna get a different kit. I really like how zone is made and the BDS is just to pricey for a leveling kit.

Thank you!

I think all but the trackbar will work. You would need a drop bracket, or ride around with your axle a little out of center I guess

I really don't like the idea of a drop box tho. I've seen them come loose and cause issues.

Is it Thar hole is to small or to large?
