2wd F-350 lift??

Im looking for a suspension lift for my 97 2wd F-350. Only one I have found is the Fabtech 4" which is perfect except they are back ordered indefinitely. Anyone know of something?

I also found this, not sure if my front end is the same though...

FOUND THIS TODAY

Not sure if it works, but it's a glimmer of hope.

I know the title saws 4wd, but I bet the front spring perches are pretty much the same.

Only problem is the F-350 2wd trucks do not have leaf springs in the front at all. I-beams with coils.

E-series van is completely different. No one makes anything so I bought a 99 SD.

1987 Ford F250 Buildup - Rancho Shocks - Diesel Power Magazine

article in diesel power mag a few years ago, im in the process of leveling my 2wd when i get around to it, purchased some spacers for 99-04 2wd trucks, hopefully the stud extender works. anything over 2 inches will require drop brackets for the pivot arms since a camber bushing can only do so much.

http://shop.ebay.com/?_from=R40&_trk...All-Categories

there is a bunch on ebay, the only reason these wouldnt work is if the stud extender is a different thread, your local hardware store should be able to get the correct one if this is the case

That's kinda funny, "No one makes anything so I bought a 99 SD"

I guess that's one way to solve a technical issue.

That link I posted does have front coils, and rear add a leafs. But it was only a little lift, not really worth it.

I'm personally keeping my eye out for a 4" lift. Nothing crazy, just a simple lift.
