Lift question

Okay I know this is probably asked a lot but can somebody please help me out with a way to lift the front up on an 07 f250 2wd (diesel). I currently have a level kit on right now it's the polyethylene spacers supposed to be 2" but I layed under the truck and they actually measured 1.5 inches. So idk if it would help if I ordered metal spacers. And last I know the only other lift is a 6" but that's to much for my preferences does anyone know of a place where I could get a custom 4" or by a 4" lift for the gas models and upgrade the springs to make it like the diesel lifts? I'm only wanting the height of like the 4wd models but find no lifts. Only 2" and 6". Could I replace some of the front end suspension parts on my truck with some of the 4wd parts? Any info would be very helpful. Thanks

I'm in the same boat. Put the plastic spacers in about a year ago on my 06 2WD and they helped the overall stance, but I definitely want more height (preferably 4").

Yeah 4" is the stance I want as well but we will never find that for our trucks unless you can find a company that will custom do it to your truck for probably way more than you want to spend. I am going to go with the 6". It looks really good on the 2wd trucks, its not to high and it does not sag the ground anymore. I had some fellow members on here send me pics and help with the 6" choice (thank you) to those members. and last thing, I happened to pull up to an f250 in the parking lot the other day with same size tires as me and same lift stance, just so had my tape measure on me and measured his truck turns out to be same height and it looked good so im going with 6" fabtech. I think you would like it as well.

Yeah. I'm a little fearful of going to the full 6, but they do look good. Have you (or anyone else) seen a 2wd with a leveling kit and big tires - as in 285/75/17 or something like it? This may be a better option for me so i'm still able to pull it into the garage to work on it and keep it out of the hail and whatnot.
