Questions about 95 F250.

Hey guys, got a question for you. I have a 95 F250 7.3. I bought it for less than $900 (needing an injector). I have since done the entire front end (all ball joints, tie rods, ujoints,etc) My question is this. I would like to get the truck to sit like a stock F350. I would need a 2" lift in the front and F350 blocks in the rear. Can i lift the stock F250 2" or will it be a problem with the independent front suspension? I dont use this truck enough to consider a Front axle swap.

i have same year & model truck. If u must lift the ****ty twin i beam only 2" you can get away with just buying dual caster/camber adjusters. But fair warning my buddy lifted his and replaces his ball joints every few months, but with life time warranty moog ones every time (way to work the system).Granted twin I-beams are known for eating ball joints but i have 0 lift and Ive only replaced the LF side only in 35k miles.If u decide u want to lift much higher you prob have good luck with purchasing a i beam drop bracket, but it wasn't worth the 300 bucks for me. i just trimmed my bumper and put 285/75/16 under stock height and it does just fine

first off just do a dana 60 swap. then run 350 springs and either the 350 block or just use another 2 inch block. But if you MUST lift the TTB then get some of these

Axle Pivot Brackets Miscellaneous - Ford 1980-97 F250 4wd w/2" lift axle pivot brackets - pair

and do some form of 2 inch lift in springs in the front

Trucks and parts............
