Rough Country 1.5 Leveling Springs or 2.5 Spacer???

I want to bring the front up SLIGHTLY without having it higher than the rear or having to add blocks to the back. Rough Country has a set of progressive rate springs that show 1 to 1.5 lift to the front and stock shocks will still work. My wife's about to start PA, Physicians Assistant School, so money's tight right now as we're trying to get everything paid off. Not being able to play ANY, she said I could do a little before she started. The coil springs are only $160 and I can do all the work. Anybody used/useing these on the front of the SD? My truck is an '06 with the FX4 Crew Cab.

Also, would I need to worry about track adjustment just for 1 to 1.5 inches?

Thanks all for any and all input!!!

2" front spacer

I did a 2inch spacer UNDER the front coil spring. 20k miles later and no problems with "wierd" steering or tire wear. Stock track bar and shocks. Hope this helps.

Well this all depends on whether this stuff is on a 250 or 350 too. The 350's have taller blocks in the rear...

True - my bad. F250 in my case. Again, CAN'T break the bank but want to do it without any problems as it's also time to add new tires. Probably just going back with the stock GoodYear 20 inchers.

Hekendor is the name of the company. Im sure I didn't spell it right - 06 F250 cc short bed 18 inch wheels 275-70 tires. Looks like room for next size larger tires when current tires are done. Less than 1/4 inch difference front to back. Firestone air bags installed on rear to keep level with trailer in tow. No after photos YET. Been too darn cold in Colorado.
