95 F350 2 wheel drive front end left

I am looking at raising the front end about 2" or a total lift of 2"-3". I like the front a lttle higher may be from age dont know but sure would like the look of a little lift. Can anyone steer me in the right direction for a 2 wd CCLB? I dont know if I need a suspension or just a body left, I think body may do it but too sure. Thanks

A gasser lift will work fine, it just won't sit as tall because of the added weight of the diesel, check out cp trucks, they have a leveling kit.

The gasser lift needs more strength, I've literally seen the extending parts for the tib snap

I called rough country, they said as long as I don't do any serious off tossing I should be okay, there is a guy on here somewhere with a gasser lift on his eclb, but once I get it on I will figure out some gussets to weld on the I bream drop brackets, that should toughen it up.

My buddy snapped his while towing on the interstate in Texas, he has since added a gusset to the drop brackets and has been problem free since

I think thats what I will do, hopefully going to install this weekend, the rivets holding the stock radius arm bracket are going to be a spin to remove.
