Level out a two wheel drive

Has anybody leveled out a two wheel drive by raising the front end? How much lift? What did you use? any pics?

Thanks

Mika

2" coil spacers will level it, and you can run 33x12.50 tires

mine is done with daystar spacers

Also, I am assuming you like the ride, and quality of the part or you would have said so on the original post...

One more thing....
Sorry for all the multiple posts...
Were there any additional components required for the install?
Lines? Shocks? etc...

yes I did the install took less then 1 hr

you use the factory shocks and lines , everything you need to install these come with the spacers.. basically a extension stud and spacers

ride quality does not change as you are still on the stock spring..

you will need to get alignment at a shop, that cost me about $100 including the alignment cams that they have to use

Kam,

No kidding, they have them for $55 on there, and free shipping.
Guess I'll get those and put them on myself.
I just crawled under it a few minutes ago and it looks exactly the same as my old 90 2wd
(just much beefier radius arms obviously...)

Thanks for the tip.
