Default What leveling kit should I get?

Alright guys I have a 2008 f150 limited, i just recently bought it and It's time for a new set of tires, wanted to go with a 35x12.50x18 but I wasn't sure what leveling kit I needed to go with, already has 295/79/18s on it (34") and I believe it's stock right now so any suggestions would help

Autospring makes good products and they're reasonably priced. A 1.5" would leave a touch of rake, and a 2" would put you just about dead level.

Despite what some may tell you, mostly all leveling kits are the same (assuming you're talking spacers). I'd just start by measuring the difference on your current setup between the front and back and purchasing the kit that would make them even if that's what you're looking for. From the looks of things I'd say 2" would do it. Wouldn't go any bigger than 2.5 for wear-and-tear reasons but you may need that to clear a 35 depending on how wide you want it

I have been shopping around and I think I have decided on the 2.5 so I can have a little more in the front than the back

This is my 2005 I'm running 305s right now but I bought the truck with a level on it so I think it's a 2.5 or a 3

I just purchased the Rancho Assembled Leveling Strut and rear matching 9000 shocks for $500 I needed to replace worn shocks and it only came out to $200 bucks more for a lift and much better shocks plus they are adjustable.
