1/2" level kit?

Ok, on a stock 4x4 diesel F250 (2005-2007) how much higher is the rear vs the front? isn't it .5"? My 4" Skyjacker kit comes with 4" front springs and 3.5" rear blocks and sits PERFECTLY level. So I'm assuming it's 1/2". If so.... How come nobody offers a "F250 level kit"? They only offer the 2-2.5" nose lift.... for the F350's. At my work we have a CNC plasma cutter. I'm debating making some spacers that fit ontop of the spring seat. Either out of 3/8" or 1/2" material. Debating using Aluminum or regular steel plate. What do you guys think?

Another thing I noticed is with my 4" kit, the front suspension travels 2" up with normal usage out of the 3.5" limit. I can tell by the shock's rod that is clean and then Dirty; you can see the travel line. Looks like 2" up in the front and rear is what I'm using right now. But if I go back to stock, Heck I'll only have 2" of up travel. thats what a stock F250 has for front up travel correct? 2" between the bump stop and axle pad.
