F350 Leveling Kit? Can't find anywhere

Looking for a front end leveling kit for my 96 F350 Single Cab. I've checked multiple sites and can't find one anywhere. I just need to bump the front of my truck up enough to slide my 35's under it. Anyone know where I can look? If they are hard to find does anyone have another other ideas that can level out my truck without a huge price tag. Thanks, Pete

You can order new springs also. Custom Suspension
Or has this already been mentioned?
I ordered new 2" over springs for my F250. I couldnt see adding or changing anything and using the old sagging springs.

Space your bumper out 1" should fit! If not I'd get a 3" rs kit if the ride qualit matters..much better. If you want a fantastic riding truck use SD V and B code springs. Helped many do this mod..PM me.

I have also looked for one with little results. The only thing I can find is 1.5" add-a-leafs, or flip shakle kits for the F350's. F250's are a dime a dozen, and allot different from what I've been told. It's seems really hard to find anyone that has done this on a 350. I was getting all kinds of help from people with the 250's, but like I said, there different. I'm waiting to see someone that has done the add-a-leaf to see how well it worked before I purchase anything. I guess 33's will do for now!

Yes it will level the truck, then get castor-camber bushings on the balljoints on a F250 to get the alinement correct. Then a kidney belt.
