I would recommend a coil spring compressor, it makes it alot easier. You can rent one from your local auto parts store.

Don't need any special tools. Very easy to do. Measure the height difference first, then order a leveling kit for that amount. Each truck is different. For my 06 f350 fx4 i had to get just about 4 inches for it to sit perfectly level unloaded (rear untouched).

Icon dual stabilizer kit
Icon adjustable track bar
Bds bottom spacer leveling kit w/ cams (2")
7000lb Ford coil springs
PMF 1.5" Top coil spring spacer.

PMF Swaybar drop bracket (haven't gotten to install it)
PMF Radius arm drop brackets (current nightmare/mishap/confusion)


I went with that set up because it started as the bds leveling kit, wasn't level so i got the ford springs (most aftermarket ones are softer and i hang a 9ft plow off the front). Still wasn't level so i got the top spacer. With 4 inches of lift you need the other stuff. 35/12.50's on stock wheels. I see some ever so slight rubbing on the radius arm.

silverstroker, you will only need 2 inches to be level. The reason gtmustang needed 4 is because he has a 350 which are 2 inches higher in the rear than a 250.
