Leveling Kit for my F150, got a few ??\'s

Ok so enough dreaming about what <nobr>vehicle</nobr> I want to get next year. I put some 3/4 ton springs in my F150 and now the rear end sits up in the air. I've got lots of room back there for 33's now. HOWEVER, my front end is still where it used to be, maybe even lower because the wieght is hifted forward. I'm looking at getting the daystar leveling kit like the one here - http://www.suspensionconnection.com/...L.html#ITEMIMG

What are your thoughts on it?? Can I use the same shocks I have, I've heard you only get an inch or 2 of lift out of these so I can't imagine I'd need longer shocks.

I forgot to ask if you need a coil compression tool to put this in?? I've never worked with coil springs before.

Thanks in advance

Re: Leveling Kit for my F150, got a few ??\'s

really? I can get springs for that kind of money? Can you point me in the right direction.

Never mind I found some here - http://www.suspensionconnection.com/...con/22811.html

Looking for some more input on this? Of course the coil springs are gonna cost me about $30 bucks more in shipping to get them here. Am I going to need a spring compressor in either case? Any suggestions are appreciated.

I didnt need a compressor for my springs, just removed the shock and the suspension dropped right down. U wont need longer shocks, but i custom did some on my ranger for more travel

Almost forgot. Your gonna need an alignment afterwards. Your tires will look liske this "V" if ya know what i mean [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img] Might be easiest to get adjustable camber caster bushings from a local 4x4 place. Or just let the alignment guy take care of it.

Thanks for the info, can't wait to do it so my truck doesn't look like it's going to drive right into the ground.
