I did a 2wd lift in a dodge a few years back. got it from Fabtech, you may look to them. There are several 2wd lift kits out ther but they are about as much as for a 4wd. Check out the Pre Runner and SCORE type racing sites theres a ton of options. just make sure you do control arms with the kit cause youll end up with em eventually if your as hard on em as i was. haha

I have searched ALOT and have not found a single one for the 97 2wd. I also have a 97 2wd and just want to level it up in the front which is only about 2" and I cant seem to find anything. I might actually end up converting to a D60 solid front axle and leafs in order to obtain my goal.
I just couldn't pass up the deal I got on my 2wd 4 door short bed so if I have to convert then so be it.
I will be watching this thread just in case SOMEONE knows of some way to lift these and just didn't see my thread on asking the same question.

I think Donahoe (sp?) racing deals with some bigger trucks as far as suspension goes....

Im in the EXACT same boat as you, i read an article a while back in diesel power mag, hope this helps some

1987 Ford F250 Buildup - Rancho Shocks - Diesel Power Magazine

basically you use a bronco or f150 lift spacers but you need a stud extender to extend the spring stud through the spacer because its bigger than an f150. Also you need to get the proper alignment ball join bushings or sle the tires wouldnt be straight after raising it.

I used a gasser lift. Works well. When I talked to skyjacker they said it should last as long as you are not off roading the heck out of it.

Kelderman I think has a good one, and search instead for a 96 lift kit, those types tend to remember our double truck types.
