99 f250 need info on lift for 35's

Hi, new to the forum,
I Bought this truck (99 f250 4x4) about a month ago, and also bought a set of 35's from my cousin. I want to put them on my truck, they look like they will fit, but i am a little worried about rubbing in the font. The rear is a little taller than the front, and I would like it leveled. My cousin think's I just need to add a leaf in the front, but I don"t know how. Will this work? and where can I get a set, and info on the process of doing it? I always do my own work on my trucks, so I will do this on my own too. any info or advice would be greatly apreciated. thanks.

A leveling kit will fit 35's fine. You shouldn't need a new trac bar bracket, but I'd add an adjustable trac bar at the same time to save on headaches. You may also need to move the sway bar mounts from the inside of the frame rails to the bottom of them to compensate.

I just installed a Fabtech 3.5" hanger kit on a customer's 02 F350 and the instructions say just to bolt the trac bar right back on. I thought it wouldn't work before I installed it and I can now see I'm right. Any ideas?

Sorry for the jack, but were doin' a 2" block in the rear and he's runnin' 35s.

Truck is on level ground, sitting on it's own weight, right?

I thought you could get away without an adjustable track bar up to 5" of lift of SD's...guess I'm wrong.

Check out THIS page, big paragraph, about the 3rd line from the end 'splains it all.
