2005 f-250: 2" or 2.5" or 3" leveling kit

hey guys just wondering since i'm trying to level out my 05....

it measures 39.25" in the front and 41.75 inches in the rear...

but eventually i want to go with a 1-2inch block in the rear.... (but that wont be at the same time as the leveling kit.)

so basically i want something that will make it level but still give me some clearance.... what size should i go with?

thanks in advance

Go with the 7" lift along with some 38/15.50/18 tires and be done with it.
Looks like your well accustomed to that lift range by looking at your signature

I had the camburg kit on my 06 350 initially and it was still noticably higher in the rear. I swapped the 2" coils for 2.5" Icon coils and my truck is just about perfect for my tastes. The rear is just a bit higher than the front. But I have a 350 with the factory overloads and blocks.
