HOW DO I LIFT/LEVEL THE FRONT OF MY 97 OBS?

Has anyone did this? I bought a CHERRY 97 5speed 2wd.. i want to put 285/75/16's on there... it has that terrible factory "rake" to it... Ive checked and called Rough Country, Pro Comp, SuperLift and every other lift company... I know somebody has lifted the front of this truck... BTW, it has coils, not leafs in the front...
thanks in advance..

Try going to your local spring shop. There is one around here that sells lift coils.

Coil springs are a half ton thing. I guess us big truck driver didn't deserve a smooth ride back in the day.

Yeah, the truck came with the golden kit when I bought it. I paid 5K for my turn key veg truck. It had over 20k in wvo miles. I'm a little let down on the golden kit, don't like sharing the fuel bowl, and my purge is way longer than I would like.
But I love that monster racor.
I'm planning on running parallel fuel systems and sharing nothing but the fuel rail.
