Anybody Make Leveling Leaf Springs???

Does anybody know where a fella can get some leaf springs to level the dang truck, instead of leaf packs or blocks? I want the whole leaf spring. I can't find such a thing on any of the top suspension companies' websites, and I really don't need to go for a 4 inch lift kit. I'm not used to dealing with leafs in the front, coming from an '08 model to an '04 F250. If anybody has any info on this subject, it would be greatly appreciated!

X2. I put X code springs on mine and it raised up about 3.5". Now front to rear is only 2" difference. The ride feels no different from what I had.

Check suspensionkings.com

Very nice info! Turns out it's thesuspensionking.com and they even make custom ordered leaf springs up to 3" over stock height! I may give those guys a call and see if they can hook me up. I didn't see the X code springs though. I do see them on SDtrucksprings.com though So your truck is sitting 2" nose up from what I understand? What about the trac bar adjustment?

My truck originally had the springs for a gaser. I don't know why. My old leafs flexed so much they appeared inverted. Plus just worn out. The front sat almost as low as a 2WD. Instead of the front 6" lower than the back, now its only 2".

Since my truck was an e99, I installed a late MOOG "problem solver" track bar from Rockauto for $54.00 (5/16" shorter) and it actually centered my axle dang near perfect with the correct leaf springs. I had to drill out my track bar perches though because of different bolt hole size.
