Installing a leveling kit in 2016 f150

I'm planning on installing a leveling kit on the front end of my 2016 f150. Do you have to disconnect the swaybar link and lower ball joint, or can you jack the frame up to remove and replace the struts with the leveling spacer? What is the correct thickness amount to install, I see they have different sizes?

Check out f150forum.com, there is a ton of info about leveling kits there. It seems like 2" is the most common. I havent done anything to my suspension yet so I cant answer your questions about the end link or ball joint. Post up a pic of your truck when your done. Here's mine:

I went with Bilstein adjustable leveling shocks in the front. I've been pleased with them.

The Bilstein adjustable is the way to go. Leveling kits are cheaper and easier but you're likely to have some front end issues down the road (pun intended).
