Lift help.

I have an 06 2WD on a 6" Fabtech lift. Now because of the weight of the front end its lower than the rear by a couple inches, and it bugs the F**k out of me. All the shops in town that I talk to say they wont stack lifts to help me get the front end up. Is anyone know if there is a simple way to do this, ie spacers or a leveling kit or something that won't max out my camber to where I can't align it.
Any advice would be great. thanks

I have 6" springs, Bilstein alum shocks, dual steering dampner, dropped sway bar , bent angle radius arms(no rub) and new I-beams. The ride is sweet and soft compared to the 4x4's I've ridden in. I could probably go a little bigger tires if I can get the front end up 2".

That link says those spacers are only good up to 04's.

your right, but they told me they would work on a 05 06 or 07, mine is a 06 and they do work fine, I put them on myself, they go between the bottom of the coil spring and the front end
