Advise on a leveling kit

Hello all I'm new to this site. I have a 2001 f250 XLT 7.3 I have owned it from day one it has 320,000 miles on it I figured it's time to give my baby a face lift. I want to put bigger tires and wheels I'm thinking 33x12.50. I dont want a full lift kit I was told that a leveling kit would allow room for the tires not to run. What do you all think? Also what would you recommend. Thanks

Re: Advise on a leveling kit

There are a lot of opinions and options out there, I went with SuperLifts 2" kit since it includes and Track Bar relocation bracket to keep the panhard bar geometry close to stock. It has all new front springs and been working fine for 10+ years. You most likely come across folks talking about "mini paks" which to me is way to close to a block in the front which is a no-no. I also raised the back with an add-a-leaf (that raised the back way too much...) "was supposed to be" about 1" to 1-1 /2" but was more like 3... So I put in F250 blocks with new u-bolts to lower the back... A lot a bs, but I have a truck that is lifted some and has a factory rake which I like, since I haul goose-necks etc.
