Hi guys. I need new tires and shocks. So, while I am at it I want to upgrade to 35" tires and a 2.5" leveling kit. I am looking for input on the following two options...

Newton 2.5" leveling kit plus Bilstein 5100 shocks

2008-2010 F250 F350 FORD SUPERDUTY LEVELING KIT 2.5" | eBay

Rough Country 3" suspension lift plus Perf. 2.2 shock upgrade

Ford Super Duty Suspension Lift Kit

Both options look to be around $650. I am trying to weigh pros and cons and hope you guys can help.

Newton option
Pros:
I hear that it is a good kit (given the price)
No stacked blocks in the back

Cons:
No radius drop arm brackets
Has a track bar bracket spacer instead of a whole different mount

Rough Country option
Pros:
Radius arm drop brackets
Track bar bracket
New front springs

Cons:
I hear the 9000 shocks suck. (Does anybody have feedback on the upgraded shocks that I am looking at?)
Have to stack the blocks in the back

I realize there may be better options that are more expensive, but if we could keep just talk about your opinions on these two options or other recommendations in the same price range, I would appreciate it. Thanks in advance for the help.

in the past, i have had bad dealings with topgun, not to say it hasnt changed, but i wont return. upon purchase , they told me thee bilstein didnt have the right bushing for my app, they had the part, but wanted me to wait until i cofirmed the part prior to shipping. go figure.

i cannot speak for there pieces , but i can easily see most are COPIES of others work..... how simple is that to do.

i also dont recommend anything with rough country, tough country, and i believe superlift, which i believe are one in the same.

Thanks for the responses, guys. I will continue to research!

I will make sure I thoroughly use the Search function before I start asking about what tires people recommend. :D
