i installed reddylift 2.5"pucks up front, replaced my rear blocks with 1.5" over to get it back to the stock stance. rear air bags helped too. not sure if that helps...

Im wondering if I should go with the 2.5" kit or stay with the 2" on a 11' F350? I want the truck level with no pre runner look.

I would go with the 2" so you have an *ever so slight* rake for towing and whatnot.

2008 Red CCSB 6.4 Auto Lariat.
Stock 20's wrapped in 35x12.50R20 Toyo MT's, 3.73 gears, Nav, Backup Cam, Tailgate step, Upfitters, etc.
Mods: AFE Intake, Line-X, 20% Tint, Clear Bra, Husky Mats, Smoked Recon Mirror markers/3rd brake light, Bushwacker Pocket style flares w/ mud flaps + an aluminum Rapid Hitch (one of the best investments!)
Feel free to PM with any questions about any of my mods.

I have been looking at the many different leveling kits out there and I still remain unsure of what kit to buy. I found this kit "BDS 2" leveling kit". It seems good and at a decent price to get 4 new shocks and the kit. Anyone have any feedback on this set-up and company?


Here is a link to their site:http://www.bds-suspension.com/kits/326H

I have the 2.5" AutoSpring pucks, they were $89 shipped to my door 2 years ago for my 2008 F-350, this year they were $79 shipped to my door. No shocks, no drop brackets, nothing, just pucks and go. It levels a F-350 great, ride is the same as stock, etc. I was happy with mine on my '08 and I'm happy with mine on my '10 too. I'd recommend them to anyone.

'10 F350, CCLB, SRW, 4x4, 6 speed, 2.5" AutoSpring front leveling pucks, 37 x 13.50 x 18 Toyo's, 18 x 9 XD Diesel's, Road Armors front/rear

I went with the 2" Autospring kit with the shock relocation brackets,thought about the 2.5" kit but when I sit all my tool box's thats gonna add a pretty fair amount of weight so I didnt want to chance the prerunner look..
