Default 2007 2500 Leveling Kit

In the near future, I would like to add a leveling kit in order to fit 285's on my 07 2500. There are several different brands and styles and I think that replacement springs will be my best option (Based on opinions of other DR members) That being said I have been looking at the Kore leveling kit. The kit includes new springs (heavier rate and slightly taller) as well as bilstein shocks for the front.
I have heard but cannot find any information regarding additional parts (Adjustable track etc.) that i need with this kit. If you have this, let me know your opinions.

Thanks,

No need for the adjustable trackbar the stock one will work fine. Kore is a great system.

Thanks Max, Does that truck have 285's or 315's on it?
And are you a dealer for Kore?

Ok, so after 40,000 miles, my stock michelins are begining to suck in the snow. They still have tread left (probably about 15,000 miles) If i were to only drive on pavement, they would be my next set of tires, however, i dont.
So i have been looking at Kore and think i might just go ahead and pick up their leveling kit and a pair of Bilstien 5100's for the rear.
I have searched online and found that some people with that kit have used an adjustable track bar, others have not. I will put a call into Kore later to find out.
Other than deciding wheter i need a track bar or not, i need to know how much of a pain the install is.
I have a lift in my shop so i am sure it will make it easier, but do i need spring compressors to remove and install the coils?

And how would I reprogram my ECU to the larger tires? I know a smarty would, but is that something the dealer can do too?

Bump to the top.
Im getting ready to buy a kit from Kore.
Some info:
I was told I dont need an adjustable track bar, but the front end alignment (left to right) will be off about a 1/4" which is negligible.
On an 07, the computer can be reprogrammed for tires up to 285? Anyone have this done from a dealer?
How much of a pain is it to install? I have a lift in my shop also.

Having a lift will make things much easier. The dealer can reprogram for tire size...how much depends on how much they like you. I have KORE on mine and the stock track bar. Just get an alignment after you do the install and things should be good.

My brother is running 315's on his 07 and it is completely stock. They are 315/70/17 on 9 or 9.5 inch wheels. He has no issues with rubbing. Just a cheaper way to go.
