02 F350 Leveling kit ??

Hi guys, I'm new to this site, but could tell pretty quickly this is the place to learn and get answers on Powerstroke Fords. I've got an 02' F350 Superduty 7.3 extended cab short bed 4x4 truck that I want to level the front end up. There are soo many different kits out there.I'm trying to find one that I could possibly get 35's on it without loosing the ride ? I've been checking out Zone's, Pro-Comp and Rough Country.I also planned on adding Bilstein 5100 shocks. Any input or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

This'll work for what you're wanting, it'll level it out and you can run 35s. Just a cheap leaf pack from ebay.

Yes on the Bilsteins, you'll love em. Only suggestion would be to post this in the 99-03 7.3L Exterior discussion, it'll get more attention in a place like that.

you can get pro comp 22210 springs for around 130 each . adjustable track bar 100 bucks and bilsteins about 300-400 bucks and your set.

the mini spring packs ride horrible by the way.
go with a full replacement spring such as x-codes or pro comp springs.

Quality mini spring packs will not change the ride quality..Icon or Deavers.
Most 35" will clear using factory V codes and a 3" hanger kit.

We have what's needed PM me if I can help.

Yeah, I've had a spring pack on both of my trucks and didn't notice a difference.

Thanks for all the input and tips on leveling my F350. I ended up going with the new 2 1/2" front springs from SDTrucksprings,drop tracking bar bracket,Bilstein 5100 Shocks. I put on new BFGoodrich All Terrain 315x75R16D and 10" wheels.The truck rides better than it did before and handles great.

@ Jesman , yeah I went with the #22964K 2.5" Tuff Country kit from SDTrucksprings. I added the Bilstein 5100 shocks, Bilstein steering stabilizer and new sway bar brackets, they weren't required for the lift but my bushings were worn.
