Front spring options

I have a 96 F250 extra cab (not 4 door) 7.3 with 157000 miles and I am wanting to put some aftermarket rims and 285s on it but my problem is the front springs are sagging some and the wheel/tire combo will not clear. Does anyone have any suggestions for front springs? None of the aftermarket has them for a 2wd diesel application. Would front springs for say a 4 door 250 or 350 offer an increase in front end height? Just looking for something to raise the fr end some. Not neccessarily wanting a pre runner kit due to cost and extra height.

THx

I'd say just get a replacement set. I purchased a set at NAPA.

Another option would be to buy a coil spacer like what is sold as a levelling kit, and have the truck re-aligned.
