leveling

I bought a 2 inch leveling kit for my truck.I'm ordering an adjustable track bar also because my cousin advised to be safe due to having to force springs to line back up.he also recommended longer sway bar end links.are the longer sway bar end links really needed because I can't find any for only 2 inch kits.thanks for any help.

Shouldn't have to change any of that for two inches. I haven't read here at all where people have changed anything with a two inch level kit.

That's why I didn't buy anything else.he said axle would be a little off center though.for 100 bucks I'll just get the track bar.if it turns out he won't need it I'll just return it

I installed a 2-1/2" leveling kit on an F250, and it was absolute hell getting the track bar bolt back in. I ended up having to hook my truck up to one of the tow hooks on the other truck and pull it sideways. It was either that or set a two ton block of concrete on his hood

Did you need longer sway bar end links or were they OK.
