I've done a good amount of research over the past couple of years regarding lifting a 2WD. For my 06 (if not all Powerstrokes), it seems as if I have 2 options: either the 2" leveling blocks which I currently have; or a 6" lift - which I understand is basically a 4" lift when you factor in the 2" drop in the front.
My issue is that after a couple of years of running the polyurethane 2" leveling pucks, the front is starting to sag again. My question for anyone who's done this is: would I be better off using the 2" METAL spacers under the front springs? Do the metal spacers make for a much rougher ride? I'm also noticing that my alignment is getting worse.
Additionally, I've probably got 10-15k miles of life left on the tires. If I were to do the 6" lift, now would be the time, since bigger tires would be necessary. Any general opinions on this? I've seen some before/after pics and it looks pretty good. I'm just wondering if you would need to re-gear afterwards. Any opinions would be appreciated. I'm tired of that sagging front end.
