Leveling kit confusion

I'm in the market to raise the front of my 2004 f350 6.0l srw 4wd and when I search leveling kits the 2005 and up are hundreds of dollars less than the 2004. Is there a simple 2.5 inch blocks I cn do for this. Any help is greatly appreciated and if you hve any specific links I can check out I'd appreciate it thanks ahead of time

You don't want blocks in the front. Very unsafe. You either need a add-a-leaf, mini spring pack or reverse shackles.

How does it ride? It's 2.7 I'm sure the extra 2 mm doesn't make a difference from the 2.5 recommended... And last question how was installation
But thanks for the reply as well

IMO pure crap....Deaver spring who first developed the mini spring pack will not sell one over 2", Plus any company that states you can do this without using a adj track bar doesn't understand Geometry. Its a science the axle will shift aprox 1".
