lift/level?

OK guys, what would be the best way to do this (i know nuthing about lift/level kits, there looks to be alot out there.)

I want to go 2" higher in the back, and 3.5-4" higher in the front. that would level my truck out and get it slightly higher. Any suggestions?

You best bet would be to do the Dana 60 swap with a RSK.

The only way to get 3-4" of lift in the front of an F-250 is to swap in a lift, not recommended, or do the Dana 60 swap with F-350 leafs and an add-a-leaf.

Those are you only 2 options. You can't simply swap 3-4" springs in the front of a TTB suspension and make it work.

Just do a skyjacker 4" kit. Has all the drop barckets and springs you need. The 4" kit will do everything you want
